It’s not yet an e-reader, but the Seattle Public Library has released a mobile application for reserving books and accessing online services from a phone.
The SPL Mobile app, developed by Boopsie, is available in versions for the iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian and J3ME platforms.
It’s available by visiting spl.boopsie.com on your mobile device.
The app appears as the library begins a study of what sort of technology services it should offer. The process includes a panel discussion at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Central Library on technology and how it will affect the future of libraries.
“The Library is hosting this program to stimulate broad thinking about future library services and models as we begin developing a new strategic plan,” City Librarian Susan Hildreth said in the release.
