How-To Guides

Mobile Site

The PINES catalog has been optimized for use on most smartphones and mobile devices. Rather than requiring you to download and install an app, simply open your phone's web browser and go to gapines.org. The site will recognize that your screen is smaller than normal and adjust itself automatically to display better on your screen. You will be able to search for books, access your account, place holds, and more, just like you can do from a computer.

Add the PINES Icon to Your Phone

Did you know that most phones will allow you to add a web site as an icon on your screen so that you can get back to it at the touch of a button? Different mobile devices have different ways of doing this, and here are instructions for several common devices.
