The Monrovia Public Library has been in talks with Library Market, a firm which provides interactive and user-friendly calendar management software, to enhance the library’s calendar. Benefits of partnering with the firm would include:

  • A user-friendly interface that is mobile-friendly.
  • Site administrators would be able to easily enter and update program information.
  • Software can be used to allow online booking of study rooms.
  • Registration is easy for both patrons and staff.
  • Software will automatically notify program attendees 24 hours before an event with a reminder email and contact those on a waitlist if a spot opens up.
  • Reports and statistics allow staff to see how and when patrons sign up for programs or study rooms (helpful for Library Board or State Report).
  • The firm provides training for all staff and a customized manual specific to Monrovia’s library.
  • Location maps on event listings to help direct patrons during off-site programs.
  • Patrons can easily share events on social media or via email with others.
  • Disclaimers, program descriptions, and images can be created and easily attached to multiple programs.
  • The firm offers support via phone, email, and their help desk ticketing system.
  • Patrons can easily filter events by age group, date, or topic.

Some examples of public libraries that are currently utilizing the Library Market software include Helen Plum LibraryWoodridge Public Library, and Adams County Library.

The new Monrovia Library calendar is anticipated to go live at the end of June 2019.
