Boopsie is here!

The Upper Hudson Library System (UHLS) presents a brand new way to access library resources! Public libraries in Albany & Rensselaer counties now offer an app called UHLS Mobile, available for free in both Android and Apple app stores.

The app’s features include the ability to search the UHLS catalog; check the status of a library card account; place physical items (such as books, CDs and DVDs) on hold so they can be picked up at the library; discover and access digitally distributed items like ebooks, audiobooks, and digital magazines; and connect users to other information such as library hours and program calendars. The app even can scan the ISBN barcode of any book to see whether our library owns a copy of a specific title—and place a request for that book right away.

For more information and to download UHLS Mobile, go to   If you have any questions, please ask!
