What is Pop Up Library?

Pop Up Library helps libraries improve their influence by sharing the library’s digital collection with innovative partners throughout your community.

Strategically place a network device or display your library QR code at partner sites such as airports, businesses and hotels, for instant access to digital content on any mobile phone, tablet or computer!

How does it Work?

Two easy ways to implement:

  • The admin portal provides full usage stats and registration details from users
  • Users need to only register with an email address for temporary access, which is included in all reporting to your library
