Even though I think it's a good idea, I'm struggling to think of a practical 
way 2FA could be used in a real life scenario on the staff side to be honest, 
though perhaps in small/specialist libraries it might work.

For OPAC side I think any of the tools mentioned would work fine. I'm not 
familiar with implementing it from the server side but as a 2FA fan it's rare 
to see the actual app specified: usually it's just 'scan this QR code'. 

For staff side I do think that a hardware solution would be more practical. U2F 
doesn't *have* to use YubiKey, there are plenty of FIDO certified 
authentication products:

Not sure it that's at all helpful...

Any inependent tool (without 3rd parties) is better.
