Book Nook now Automated!

The library volunteers have automated the library by scanning the entire Book Nook collection into our new “libib” software. This will be very useful to members!

The board approved the conversion which uses wireless bluetooth bar code scanning to record each item in the collection while providing images and helpful information that everyone can explore in the library- or right from your computer at home. The bar code scanners are also be used for checking out and returning the books. If you provide your email address, you can even receive a friendly automated alert about any overdue books.  

With libib you can browse the entire collection, and there are sorting capabilities to help find just what you want for when you visit. For instance, you can select just the hardcovers, paperbacks, or DVDs!

We are thankful to the many volunteers who have helped with this endeavour. We hope it will encourage more members to drop by this amazing space while visiting the Evergreen Centre!
