LEID Products iLibrary KioskIn today’s convenience driven world, a primary challenge for libraries is to provide patrons with better access to library materials; while library budgets remain restrictive. LEID Products iLibrary System is an economical solution empowering libraries to meet convenience needs by offering self-service express library locations which provide access to library materials 24/7. The iLibrary System is made up of LEID’s tamperproof Electronic Modular Access Units and the new and improved iLibrary Kiosk. Patrons browse and order materials online or directly through the iLibrary Kiosk. When reserving materials, the patron is prompted to select the pick-up location of their choice. The patron will receive notification of delivery and can pick up materials from the system’s electronic lockers at any time by swiping their library card and/or entering a code into the keypad.

Granville cnty iLibrary 3iLibrary Systems are set up outside the library to extend hours or in locations remote from the actual library, which helps alleviate issues related to a library being located too far away from a patron in the community. The iLibrary self-service solution is an innovative and affordable option to provide library access where demand is insufficient to support a traditional ‘brick and mortar’ library.

“The iLibrary System has a proven track record of success,” said John Kormanik, LEID Products senior account manager. “Most of the communities that have implemented this system have placed orders for additional systems based on patron’s positive response, and the low cost of acquisition and ownership for the library.”
