To add your card for a partner library:

  1. Go to MENU (three horizontal lines button) > Add Library
  2. Search for the partner library and open it.
  3. Tap Sign In With My Card.
  4. Under "Partner Libraries," choose your home library from the list and sign in using your library card number and PIN (last four digits of your phone number).

Once you are signed into all of the different library groups, they will stay logged in.  When you go to search for an item, it will search ALL of the libraries at one time.  You will be able to tell which library has what item available due to the color of the library card that is shown next to each item.  They should all show up together on your shelf, whether they are loans, holds, or items you have tagged.
