About this app

If your library uses Atriuum as its cataloging software, you can download Librista - the companion app for patrons. With Librista, you can search the library’s online catalog and view your items out, renew and reserve items, create book lists, and more.

To begin, use the Library Locator to find your Atriuum library by location or searching. To log on, enter the same credentials you normally use to access your library’s account. Based on your library’s policies, you may be able to register for a new account.

Librista features:

- View trending and newly added items.
- Access eBooks if your library partners with other providers.
- Place holds on books, DVDs, etc.
- Watch subjects, authors, or series to be notified if your library acquires new items.
- Save items and categorize them in book lists, such as Favorites, To Be Read, etc.
- Find out about community groups/events if your library posts this information.
- View account information, including items out, fines, etc.
- Set preferences for when you receive alerts (based on your library’s notification policies).
- Scan ISBNs to see if your library has a specific book before you purchase it.
- Switch between different catalogs if you sometimes visit other libraries in your area.

It worked for almost a year. Now the app continually crashes every time I search for a book. I can't search anything without being kicked out of the app. I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times with no change. It's probably a four star product when it works. It wasn't anything super fancy but it worked. I could create bookbags for each kiddo and plan books for summer reading. I could see what was available at my library and reserve books I wanted. But now, it is useless.

We're so sorry you had a bad experience with Librista. If you could share the name of the library you attempted to connect to, this could help us track down the reason for these recent crashes so we can resolve this issue for you and other library patrons. We will work to fix the issue as soon as we can.

Confused. Don't understand the point of this app. Can't log in. Says to contact your local library about that. I did and the library assistant didn't know what I was talking about. Her exact words were "I'm not familiar with that, is Librista one of those electronic reading apps?" Told her I didn't think so. Looks like you can see the inventory of what your library has and reserve items etc. Reply to librista: I did use those credentials and I can't log in.

Thanks for getting in touch. Librista is a companion app to Atriuum, your library's software system. You can use it to reserve items, view checkouts, search your library's catalog, etc. To log on, enter the same credentials that you use to access your account on your library's online catalog. For any other concerns, email us at apps@booksys.com.

Not much to do on this app. Basic info for local library system but no online reading options - not even simple articles/blogging. Idk maybe my library is more low-key than others, but this app isn't staying on my device. I'll stick with logging in through a browser for now.

What's new

With 2.3.7, Librista provides a more stable experience to patrons. Recent bug fixes address lost reading history and server/loading issues. New features include the ability to apply for library cards online (if your library allows it) and the savings widget (view your community’s annual savings from borrowing rather than purchasing items).
