Public Libraries are usually situated in locations where the public can access their services by visiting the library. Public libraries take revenue from administration fees, fines & overdue fees, reservation fees & replacement charges.
But libraries can make more money from people who do not visit the library by offering online services, which the public want & are prepared to pay for. In many cases library staff aren't involved, so no additional workload is place upon existing staff.
If you are interested in making your libraries profitable, please read on... or call us to make an appointment for a personal presentation.
Don't close libraries, because once they are closed you lose the ability to create revenue streams for the Council, which are needed to support other services.
