New Mobile App

In addition to our mobile-friendly website (, Oldsmar Library (along with our fellow PPLC member libraries) is now offering a customized library app: PPLC POP (Pinellas Online Portal).

Want to renew an item or place one on hold? There’s an app for that. Library hours or locations? There’s an app for that. Download an eBook? Find information fast? There’s an app for that, too!

From any mobile phone or tablet connected to the internet you can instantly tap into library resources, search the catalog, check your account, place a hold and more.  Also included is BookLook Mobile, a feature that lets you scan an ISBN barcode to see if a PPLC library owns the title.

To download PPLC POP, visit on your mobile device, or go directly to the Google Play Store, iTunes or the Windows App Store.

The library’s mobile app was developed by Boopsie Inc. More than 250 libraries and universities use Boopsie to increase community and campus visibility.
