Library Cards on your iPhone/iTouch - Yes! we will accept the new scan-able barcodes you can carry with you on your iTouch or iPhone. If you are wondering what they are - There is a free App called "My Cardstar". It works with your rewards cards - like CVS, Stop & Shop, Bob's, etc, but they have a section for LIBRARY CARDS. You enter your barcode number from your library card and it creates a scan-able barcode we can use at the library in place of your regular library card. Please remember you are still responsible for your library card and its use. Treat it like a credit card and report to us any stolen or lost cards ASAP, so we can deactivate your card. They say they are currently working on apps for droid and blackberry, which should be forthcoming.
