With our MobilePrint Service™, you can use your personal computer or mobile device to print to the library’s printers from anywhere. Simply submit documents for printing and come to the library to release and pick up your document using your library card.
Lincoln City Libraries uses the Beanstack website to help us create, manage and measure our community reading programs. With the mobile app, you can track your reading and completed activities to earn incentives at your library and stay motivated to read more. The app allows you to scan barcodes to quickly add titles to your Log, record reading sessions to keep track of what you’re reading, view totals and averages of your time spent reading and titles read, check off activities as you complete them, and manage each member of your family’s reading log and activities, and view their stats. Search for “Beanstack Tracker” in the App Store or Google Play.
Because the current version of the Beanstack Tracker app isn’t optimized for iPad, it doesn’t immediately show up when searching the App Store on an iPad. If you click on “Filters” in the upper left hand corner and change “Supports” from iPad only to iPhone Only, it should display and download correctly.
