“The Census Bureau reports that 80.9% of households living below poverty level have cell phones and 58.2% have computers. We noticed this trend in our own community as well and it’s what inspired us to augment our online catalog and e-content with a user-friendly, customized mobile app.”
Our mission is to link people to the world. In order to do so, we need to offer an engaging experience that makes people want to use our wealth of authoritative resources as readily as they want to use the non-library resources that they frequent. Additionally, we need to prove the value of our investment in the app since this is a new offering for our library. With this goal in mind, we sought a partner who could offer a full package app to link our users to our resources in a way that was more accessible.
Our app meets our patrons at the speed of their lives, meets a demonstrated need observed in market research and enables access from anywhere. As price points on mobile devices and data plans drop, Boopsie is providing access for those who might not have a home computer or internet service. If you’ve been looking to add mobile services to your library’s strategic offerings – and you should be – Boopsie’s can help you get there.
