LEID Products to Showcase iLibrary System at KPLA Conference
The iLibrary System, an Innovative Standalone Service Branch will be Demonstrated at Kentucky Public Library Association Conference
Auburn Hills, MI - April 9, 2012 - LEID Products, LLC., the leader in electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, today announced they will be attending the Kentucky Public Library Association Conference April 11-13 in Bowling Green, KY. The company will showcase their iLibrary System, which has been implemented in six counties in Kentucky, in addition to the existing iLibrary installations around the country.
LEID Products recently announced that Scott County Public Library will offer extended library access to patrons through the introduction of the iLibrary System in Sadieville, KY. Also recently announced are new enhancements to the iLibrary Kiosk, which serves as the point of access and interfaces with Electronic Modular Access Units that house the library materials ordered. The new kiosk includes a larger screen, a sleeker, more modern appeal, and the entire system is tamperproof to ensure system safety in public areas. Patrons can browse materials online or directly through the iLibrary System Kiosk. Orders are placed through the kiosk or remotely via the internet using their library card number and patrons can choose to receive an email or phone call with access code when their materials are available.
“We are excited about the array of sessions we are offering this year, from learning more about technology, such as eBooks and social media as they pertain to library services, to research information on genealogy and local history resources within the state,” said Susan Nimersheim, Library Director, Grant County, KY. “This conference enables library staff from across the state to meet and share experiences and knowledge with their peers.”
“LEID Products is proud to support the KPLA Conference; our iLibrary System has been tremendously successful and well received by library patrons in Kentucky,” said Sam Hoff, president of LEID Products. “Our public libraries continue to be faced with flat budgets, increased demands for services, and constricted open hours while the cost for construction and personnel continues to escalate. Our self-service iLibrary System allows public libraries to provide library access where a traditional brick and mortar library is not an option.”
The theme of the KPLA Conference this year is “Shaping the Future: Transforming Kentucky’s Public Libraries” and the show will take place from 8:00am - 5:00pm Wednesday, April 11 through Friday, April 13 at the Holiday Inn University Plaza in Bowling Green, KY. Close to 400 attendees are expected to attend.
This year, a very dedicated group of librarians and trustees compiled a program of education for trustee certification. The voluntary program ensures that everyone gets the same message, is made aware of the laws governing libraries, and understands fully his or her role and responsibility as a library trustee. At this year’s conference trustees have the option to achieve this certification.
