Provide the personal, flexible experience library users expect.

CapiraMobile connects your library to the users you want to reach, providing a virtual extension of the great on-site service you already provide. This customizable app lets users engage with your library and learn about events, services, and resources conveniently through their phones. You can send notifications about new programs and promotions, let them search your catalog, and support self-checkout and digital library cards.
