Special discount pricing is now available for OHIONET public libraries from Boopsie. Boopsie is the industry leader in making mobile apps for libraries, supporting over 2,500 library locations worldwide.
People spend nearly 90% of their mobile time in apps, and it's important for libraries to reach patrons in a way they are accustomed to and invest in a solution that keeps up with the current technology landscape. With partners like Recorded Books, Overdrive, EBSCO and hoopla digital, it's easy to see why a Boopsie app is the best solution to help you aggregate your library's content and functions like your calendar, social media, and ask a librarian, into a single app environment.
We are seeing that Boopsie apps deliver ~30% of a library's new patrons and ~35% increase in circulation/usage of their already-paid-for subscription services.
You can view a presentation about the apps here.
