Beyond the Bookshelves: Geneva library at your fingertips with new mobile app

Want to browse for books from the Geneva Public Library while on the go, review the status of your account or look for information on upcoming programs and events?

Now you can have the library at your fingertips 24/7 with the library’s mobile app for your smartphone.

“We are excited to provide access to the library’s services from the convenience of your smartphone,” digital services librarian Ellen Anderson said.

Download the new app to:

• browse our catalogs

We are grateful for the generosity of Geneva Library Foundation, which provided funding for this app. The foundation is an IRS-approved charity, which has a mission to establish and maintain a substantial fund to provide ongoing support to the library.

To get started with the library’s mobile app, search for “Geneva Public Library” in your app store.

Need help? Call 630-232-0780, ext. 251, during business hours; email a librarian at; or text 66746, enter “gpld” and type your question.

A note from customer service

‘The Librarian Recommends’

Youth services assistant Katie Smith said “Treat” by Mary Sullivan is a “colorfully illustrated picture book that tells the humorous tale of a dog attempting to get a treat. The one catch is that ‘treat’ is the only word in the entire book, so it is a great way to work on a theatrical voice.”

Paula Krapf is public relations and marketing coordinator for the Geneva Public Library. The “Beyond the Bookshelves” column runs the third Thursday of each month. Feedback can be sent to
