Search our Catalog on your phone!

Iphone image razr image

Did you know you can search the Waltham Public Library’s catalog on your phone if you have a mobile phone with web access? You can even request books and view your account using your phone’s web browser.

If you own an iPhone, a Windows Mobile Phone, or a Blackberry, getting the full use of our catalog requires nothing more than using your phone’s built in browser.

If you don’t own one of those mobile phones, but have one that that is Java compatible (which most newer models are), and you subscribe to your carrier’s web service, you can download the web browser Opera Mini for free. If you choose to download this program, you do so at your own risk. Like all programs, make sure that you research it before installing it.

    The iPhone app stopped working properly with the update to OS 4.0. Now the catalog is accessible, as well as a patron’s list of checkouts, but items cannot be renewed, or requested, and the list of items on hold is not accessible either. This was a terrific app, and I’m not sure how much effort would be involved in updating it, but it would be greatly appreciated!!

    Hi Kim – The app was developed by a Minuteman library patron, and I don’t know if the developer is going to continue to support it.
