The fascinating world of libraries! This week our team have chosen a few hot topics for you! Topics that range widely from the digital book war to “ReadandFeed” We think it’s wonderful to see how libraries are providing nutritious holiday meals to children at this time. We also loved how Noah Lenstra highlighted the importance and value of your library staff and partnerships.
We showed off our fab new app and we looked at the need for excellence in an academic library app. We heard about the power of self issue in Donegal Libraries. We loved the Scottish Libraries “LendandMend” project.
We were also delighted that at a time when many councils in London and elsewhere are closing libraries Wandsworth Borough Council are expanding and improving their libraries.
Here are those chosen snippets from our twitter feed.
Libraries Need More Freedom to Distribute Digital Books. But publishers are working hard to prevent that.
Free Holiday Meals for children provided by GLL UK Great nutritious food provided for all.
THE ACADEMIC LIBRARY APP – so essential today! We are well known for our mobile app in public Libraries and our newly introduced events and room booking platform. Check out our all-in-one solution for students and faculty.
One of the most important tasks before us in public librarianship is advocating for the idea that the most critical asset of the library is its workers, who need to be seen as partners who work together w/ others to figure out what to do in communities.
Free up your staff with the self check in and self check out feature directly from your phone! The app is free and can be found on both iTunes and Google Play by searching for Donegal Library Service. For more info:
