Problems with Spydus app on Android

Unfortunately, the Spydus app does not work on the latest version of the Android system.  We hope this problem will be resolved soon.  

With the Spydus app you can access your Camden library account from your mobile device. You can use the app to renew your items; search for books and also search an ISBN to see if the book is available in the library.

Download the Spydus app, input your library card number and PIN, and then you're off!  Find out more about Spydus.
