Smart Scan: Your Phone, Your Library Card

Technology holds out the promise of making our lives more efficient, more productive, and just plain easier. This isn't always the case, of course, but certainly is an ideal to strive for and to embrace.

At the library, we are trying to make your life a little easier with technology too. The self-checkout stations allow you to get your books, checkout, and get on with your life. But you need your library card to make the whole process work. What if you forgot your card?

That's why we are happy to announce that you can use your smartphone as your library card at one of our checkout stations. Right now, this only works on the station closest to the entrance. All you have to do is:
  1. Download a loyalty card app for your phone (we recommend CardStar or Keyring)
  2. Enter your DPPL library card information
  3. Use your phone as your library card!
For detailed instructions about setting up CardStar or KeyRing, please visit our information page or scan the QR code below with your smartphone.

We hope it makes your day a little easier!
