Discover more about Public libraries has been designed to support public libraries as profit centres, which are self-funding.

To support such services, the public libraries have to manage training courses, rooms, accommodation, events, leisure services, access to Council services and resources which perhaps takes public libraries out of their comfort zone. However the rewards are substantial with facilities like venue catalogues contributing millions in income.

Many public library services are still offering the same services they offered some 10 years ago, and their chosen LMS focusses almost exclusively on bibliographic records resulting in many public libraries closing.

Some public libraries prefer to stick with SIP2, because this worked 10 years ago and they trust it, but LMS soutions like use PWA technology to provide fully branded and personalised downloadable apps for mobile phones. PWA technology has the convenience of a standard ‘app’ without incurring the vetting procedures of Apple and Google. is a comprehensive library management system that is easy to install, fun to use and is packed full of functionality to address all library functions and extended library services.
