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!
