Self Check Out With Our Mobile App


Great news! You can use our mobile app, ArapApp, to check out library items.

How to Use the ArapApp for Self Check Out

You will need to make sure you are running the latest version of the app from either Google Play or the Apple Store to see this option. The self check out option will appear at the top of the app, shown as a shopping cart icon.

To use the self check out option, you will need to enable your camera for use with the app. You will be prompted to do so if you haven't already enabled this.

Scanning the Barcode for Check Out

You can use the camera on your device to scan library barcodes and check out items immediately to your account.

Point your camera so the Arapahoe Library District barcode shows in the scanning window.

You can choose to check out the item, or you can place in on your For Later shelf. Read more about how to organize your library shelves in your online account.

NOTE: You will not be able to use the app to check out items from other libraries, such as Prospector or MOBIUS items.

Typing in the Barcode for Check Out

If you prefer to use the keyboard to manually enter the barcode, select the keyboard icon at the top right of the screen.

You will then be taken to a screen that allows you to enter the barcode for the item you would like to check out.


NOTE: You will not be able to use the app to check out items from other libraries, such as Prospector or MOBIUS items.
