BPL Mobile

Bentonville Library Mobile

Bentonville Public Library just launched a brand new mobile app that allows users library access from their smart phone.  Search the library catalog, check your account, ask a question, find events and more, instantly tapping into library resources, anytime, anywhere.  

Downloading eBooks and audiobooks is especially easy, since the new customized app integrates with BPL’s Overdrive service.  Our new mobile app integrates nicely with our existing products. The app interface is streamlined and simplified, but the functionality is powerful.

About BPL Mobile

BPL Mobile is replacing “LS2 Mobile,” an app the Library was using earlier in 2012.  LS2 Mobile was provided at no cost to Bentonville Library, and it was not meeting expectations.  So, the Library contracted with Boopsie, Inc. to develop a brand new product for our patrons.  BPL Mobile is a great improvement, including more features and the same customized appearance from the Library’s website and mobile site.  Patrons who liked LS2 will love BPL Mobile.  The BPL Mobile app project was funded by a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation to the Bentonville Library Foundation.
