-- Gone are the days when people entered libraries easily. Nowadays, you have to think of innovative ways to attract them to a library and make them read. If you, as a library director, do not move on to the next step, which is to include the use of the new technologies in your marketing strategy, you will not be successful.
Thankfully, you do not have to be a computer whiz and create your own mobile application in order to attract more readers. You can start to use a mobile app, like the Library of Virginia mobile app or the Arlington Library mobile app, which is already developed by specialists and that can be customized for your needs.
We tend to complain that teenagers and young adults do not read like we did several years ago. But how can they read, when they are not attracted to libraries anymore? As a librarian, you can attract more patrons to your library only if you start to use the same technologies as those used by the youth.
A mobile application that can draw more readers to a library can bring benefits to librarians and also to the readers who download the application. They would have the possibility to access the library's collection via their mobile devices, learn more about the library’s hours of operation and manage their accounts.
Speaking of the accounts that readers can access once they download a mobile application like the Library of Virginia mobile app or the Arlington Library mobile app, these apps allow them to place holds and renewals.
Another benefit that is provided by the download of such a mobile application is the direct connection with the library that is possible via text, e-mail or phone and that allows patrons to speak with a librarian and get answers to a large variety of questions.
These mobile applications are built to work on every device, regardless of the operating system that it runs. People love to use mobile devices, so allowing them to use a mobile application to access your library is a smart thing to do. Thus, readers will have access to your titles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Statistics show that mobile device users spend more time using applications than searching for various topics online. This means that it is much better for a librarian to provide their patrons with accurate and professional information stored in books, newspapers and magazines than to let them search for this kind of information online.
Searching for a way to gain more readers for your library?
