Mayor Michel Gibson, alongside town managers and employees, welcomed the 30 guests in attendance, Thursday evening, in introducing the cutting-edge technology of INFOR, the self serve station allowing library patrons, using the internet, the ability to browse through the entire collection, from the comforts of their home.
“We have 14,000 members, who have access to 8,000 books. This new tool will reduce times required in processing book returns.” said Sonia Djevalikian, Library Division head.
Through the use of the internet, this system will allow clients to access their personal membership record, reserve titles, or renew loans, and borrow ebooks.
“The Town of Kirkland is committed to continuously improving the quality of its services to citizens and this project clearly falls within this scope.” added Mayor Gibson
The self serve application made available on Friday February 14, 2014.
