Auburn Hills, MI – December 15, 2015 – LEID Products, LLC, the leader of electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, is pleased to announce it has received Honorable Mention in LibraryWorks’ second annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs.)

The MLAs were created to recognize the top products in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products were submitted in the fall using a simple application, and then were posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. These products were batched into small groups and sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience with these products in their facilities were permitted to judge the products, resulting in a truly unbiased score.

Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, etc.

“We are delighted that our iLibrary system has been so well received,” said Sam Hoff, CEO of LEID Products.  “Modern libraries are always thinking creatively to engage patrons. Libraries often turn to us when they are looking to economically expand access.  Thank you to all of our customers who voted.”

The iLibrary system combines electronic access units and a web-enabled, touchscreen kiosk to offer patrons 24/7 access to requested materials and to expand access beyond the main library branches.  The system was first installed at a library in 2011.  It has been installed at library branches and community locations such as grocery stores and office buildings throughout the country. The iLibrary system features:

Keypad controlled access with an optional card reader

    LEID Products Access.it Electronic Library Lockers Expand Library Reach Economically in Trenton New Jersey

LEID Products Access.it Electronic Library Lockers Expand Library Reach Economically in Trenton New Jersey

Trenton Public Library administrators are pleased with success of their new self-service Library Outposts; a creative solution to serve the needs of patrons affected by budget cuts, which had forced the closure of four library branches.

Auburn Hills, MI – September 15, 2015 – LEID Products, LLC., LEID Products, LLC., the leader of electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, today announced that the Trenton Free Public Library in New Jersey has confirmed success of its Library Outpost program. The program implemented its Access.it electronic library lockers and was initially introduced to the community at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 1, 2015. After five months in operation, the Library Outposts have creatively expanded the library’s reach to patrons who otherwise would not be able to access the full-service library.

Back in 2010, the Trenton Free Public Library closed four of its five library locations due to budget cuts. This drastically limited its ability to serve patrons. The library’s administrators were faced with the challenge to retain engagement with the community despite the severely reduced budget.

The library’s Executive Director, Kimberly Matthews, researched self-service library access systems. She determined that an investment in strategically placed systems could economically expand the library’s reach. With funding allocated for the project, two convenient Library Outpost locations were selected. One is in a YMCA building and the other is in the Mercer Professional Center that houses medical offices and related family services.

“The Trenton Free Public Library’s Outposts allows the Library to reach those patrons who cannot reach our Academy Street location.  It allows for a very non-traditional Library experience yet exposes patrons to some of our Library materials,” said Patricia Hall, Operational Manager of the Trenton Free Public Library.  “We […]
