The Georgetown News Graphic recently published an article by Earlene Arnett, the director of the Scott County Public Library, ‘May brings flowers and extended library services to Sadieville‘. The new self-service “Library Express Sadieville” will offer extended library access to patrons through the introduction of the LEID’s iLibrary System.
‘Library Express Sadieville’ will include LEID’s iLibrary Computer Kiosk interfaced with LEID’s Electronic Modular Access Units to offer a total “Express Library” solution. Patrons can access the Library through the iLibrary Computer Kiosk and browse for the materials to reserve. Using their library card number they are able to reserve materials to be picked up from the electronic lockers. Patrons will receive an email or phone call with access code when their materials are available for pick up. Returns can be made to a convenient book drop.
According to Arnette, “The library will make deliveries and pick-ups twice a week. Service will be closely monitored and the schedule will be adjusted to meet the demand. The iLibrary System gives us an opportunity to expand on what our bookmobile has done for years – bring life-long learning to our rural areas. Library Express Sadieville is not designed to replace bookmobile service but to enhance our outreach program and add convenience for our patrons in the far northern section of our county.”
