Library switches mobile app provider

The library now has a new mobile app called Library@Bucks. The app allows users to look up library materials, chat with a librarian, reserve rooms in the library, and more. The app is provided by the same vendor as our library catalog, SirsiDynix. It is available on all iOS (Apple) devices. A more basic version is presently available for Android users, with the full Bucks version coming soon. More information is available on our Mobile App Support page.

The previous app, provided through Boopsie, Inc., is no longer available. If you still have “Bucks Library” on your device, you can remove it.

Thank you Jacob Miranda!

Thank you Jacob Miranda for your participation with the In-School Youth Program this summer! The In-School Youth Program is coordinated by Christine Harvie and is held through the Lower Bucks Campus/Advanced Manufacturing Training Center. The program offers summer internships for local high school students. Approximately 5 students were selected from Morrisville High School (MHS) to work two days per week for four weeks. Jacob joined the library and did a wonderful job! He proved to be a real asset to the library and the staff enjoyed working with him. Thank you Jacob!

Writers Reading ~ June 28th at 3pm

Join us for the second Writers Reading event in the Library’s Learning Studio (L220), Tuesday, June 28 at 3:00. Our first “open mic” was such a success that attendees immediately started asking for another. You can volunteer to read any kind of original writing: poetry, fiction, non-fiction, children’s literature, or anything as long as it is your own creation, in front of a supportive and appreciative audience. You may also attend just to listen to your colleagues share their work. There will be refreshments.J

If you usually spend your summers off-campus, this is worth coming back for! The feedback from the first event was overwhelmingly positive: “This is a GREAT thing!”

If you would like to read, please limit your offering to five minutes and send a quick email to margaret.montet@bucks.edu.

We hope to see you then!
