INWOOD, W.Va. (Aug. 17, 2011) – The Library Corporation's LS2 Mobile app is now available for Android, offering millions of additional smart-phone users the ability to access their local library's catalog.

Originally released in November 2010 for Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, LS2 Mobile allows people to connect with their public or school libraries 24 hours a day from any place with mobile or Wi-Fi Internet service. It can search a library's entire catalog and reserve titles that a borrower can pick up at a more convenient time. Additionally, users can check their account balances and cancel holds on previously reserved titles.

"We're excited to bring the LS2 Mobile application to a wider array of users," said TLC Senior Product Developer Matt Moran. "We listened to our customers and are pleased to accommodate more library patrons."

The Android version of LS2 Mobile will work on any smart phone powered by Android 2.2 or higher, which covers most Android phones currently in use.

LS2 Mobile is available as a free download to library users. Borrowers who install the app from the Android Market or Apple's App StoreSM can access the catalogs of any library that has purchased the LS2 Mobile module.

LS2 Mobile works exclusively with LS2 PAC, an online interface for TLC's Library.Solution, Library.Solution for Schools, and CARL.X integrated library systems.
