Alex Williams, Graduate IT Support Analyst at Libraries Unlimited, said “We began working on the Devon Libraries App over 6 months in conjunction with our Library Management System provider, Axiell. The App was designed by an American developer, Solus, who specialise in making Apps for Libraries. We soft launched the App to begin with in order to obtain feedback and make any necessary alterations. Initial feedback has been very positive and we are pleased to be officially launching the App across Devon. Devon County Council has supported the new App roll out and are pleased to see this digital development. Customers can download for free from Apple and Google stores.”
