C.L. “Butch” Otter has announced that the state is adding an iPad app, the Boise Public Library, that allows patrons to access the state archives.
The new app will allow visitors to view documents and audio files of the Bois, the state library’s online archives, and more.
Otter said in a news release that the new app “provides access to the state libraries’ collection and resources and will allow you to explore and explore the state history and its rich past.”
Users can access the Boise Library online through the library’s website or mobile app.
Otters announcement came as part of a press conference on the state of Idaho that was held at the state Capitol in Boise.
Ottinger said he wants to build a stronger digital library system in the state and bring together the state agencies and departments that work together on library projects.
“The state has a lot of assets and assets to work with, and the library systems are really important,” Ottingers statement read.
“This partnership will allow us to continue to bring together our resources and our partners to continue our mission of providing state services to our citizens.”
The library is currently in the process of launching a new mobile app for the library.
Otts statement also referenced the recent changes in state legislation that will allow the state to create and operate its own public library system.
“We are excited about this opportunity to bring these resources to Idaho residents, and we will use every tool we have to make this happen,” Otter’s statement read, according to the Boise News.
The library will open the Boise library app this fall.
The Boise library system has been under state control since 2015.
Its parent, the State of Idaho, took over in 2016.
The Idaho Public Library is the state public library for Idaho.
It’s part of the Idaho Public System.
The state currently operates one of the largest public libraries in the country.
The public system also operates a public library in the city of Boise, but those are closed.
Idaho has a population of over 1.6 million people, but its population is projected to grow to nearly 1.7 million by 2065.
The current population of the Boise public library is about 1,000 people, according the library website.
