The Billings Public Library’s MSC catalog app is currently down.
We have been told by our app developer to expect that most functions on the app will not be available for the foreseeable future. A solution is being worked on by the company that provides the app but we do not know when this will be completed.
We know that the loss of these functions on the app is frustrating for the many people who use it on a regular basis and we apologize.
PLEASE NOTE: This does not affect MontanaLibrary2Go’s Libby/Overdrive app. Libby/Overdrive is still functioning.
What is happening with the app?
The app's ability to connect to our main catalog servers is broken. This means that some features may still appear to work, when in fact they are showing old, outdated information. You may see books that you have returned showing up as checked out, or holds showing as 'ready for pickup' when you've checked them out already.
Can I still use the library app on my mobile device?
No. The app will not search the catalog for books, or show you your checkouts and holds. It may show you hours and locations but since the app cannot connect to our servers, those hours may be wrong.
Is there another app I can use instead?
We do not have an alternative app at this point in time, but you CAN still search the library catalog from an internet browser and access your account on your device.
