myLIBRO -  The myLIBRO app allows patrons to search the library’s catalog, confirm item availability, and place a hold. The library receives a notification of the pickup through a dashboard that allows it to be tracked from collection to pick up. Once the items are ready for pickup, patrons are notified either via phone or email and from there they can schedule pickup through the app. Patrons can also offer feedback on the experience if they choose, with patron satisfaction tracked in the dashboard system.

Hold N Go pickup is available during regular library hours, by appointment, via the myLIBRO application which patrons can download via the Apple App Store or the Google Play store.

 After nearly 2 years of temporary access, and after most libraries reopened their doors, Ancestry   has made the difficult decision to end remote access for Ancestry Library Edition at the end of   2021. Ancestry cares deeply about libraries and their patrons, but has agreements with publishers   and other business considerations that prevent offering remote access permanently.
