Ever been at the bookstore and noticed that cool new hardcover you wanted to read but didn’t have the 19.99 to get it?
Well, now, just pull out your iPhone and check the BookMyne app to see if we have it!
You can find the BookMyne app in the iPhone app store by doing a name search or you can visit its app page directly here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bookmyne/id350625461
After you have found the app in the iPhone app store and it has downloaded to phone’s screen. Simply tab on the app.
If you “allow” for BookMyne to know your location, it will bring up the OCCC Library in a listing of nearby libraries but if not, simply click on the magnifying glass and do a name search for OCCC Library.
Once on the OCCC Library page, simply tap the star to save it as your library.
Once your library is set, simply perform a search
Then click on the search result you wish to view
So, now, you can know on the go what the library owns in terms of books, eBooks, eAudioBooks, regular audiobooks, videos, DVDs, etc. by using the BookMyne app.
