Lodi Public Library recently implemented Library.Solution and joined The Library Corporation (TLC) and its family of customers.
Lodi is a city located in San Joaquin County, California, just north of Stockton, California. With a population approaching 70,000 residents, Lodi may be best known for its 100,000 acres of grapes or its titular reference in a Creedence Clearwater Revival song. But to the city's residents, its new Library Management System will also be a noteworthy advantage.
A library committed to securing for their residents a system that offers stability in addition to expanding access to material, Lodi Public Library saw the potential Library.Solution had to offer their community. Moving from a system that experienced constant downtime issues, Lodi Public Library felt that Library.Solution offered a platform that would provide consistent service to their borrowers. During the decision-making process, many Lodi Public Library staff members noted the benefits LS2 Kids, TLC's award-winning Kids PAC, would offer their borrowers. According to Yvette Herrera, the Library's Circulation Manager, "Patrons are love, love, loving the PAC! Love the pictures, love the AR & Lexile integration."
Lodi Public Library is also the first Library.Solution customer to utilize INN-Reach, a resource sharing tool that allows libraries to lend and borrow resources between other libraries and systems, regardless of library management platform. "TLC is a company that prides itself on its ability to work with multiple companies," stated TLC's Director of Marketing Strategy, Jamison Reynolds. "The more technology options a library can offer, the better for the borrowers."
