NEW BEDFORD — Want to know more about your library? There's an app for that.
The New Bedford Public Library is now part of the Gateway City Library Trail through the Massachusetts Center for the Book's free app, MassBook Trails.
“This trail underscores the unique history, architecture, and attributes of each Gateway City library,” said Sharon Shaloo, executive director of Mass Center for the Book, in a statement. “This trail also reflects the common mission of these public institutions that is as important today as it ever was: our public libraries are centerpieces of civic engagement and advancement and benefit from the local, state and federal support they receive to further their objectives.”
The Massachusetts Center for the Book, chartered as the Commonwealth Affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, is a public-private partnership charged with developing, supporting and promoting cultural programming that advances the cause of books and reading and enhances the outreach potential of Massachusetts public libraries.
MassBook Trails may be found in the app store and through Google Play. It is also available at https://massbooktrails.oncell.com/en/index.html.
