The Cedar Rapids Public Library is changing the way we serve you and that means making some physical changes to our space. Some of these changes include:
- We’re bringing in new self-check system to make checking out easy and convenient!
- We are installing an automatic check-in system that will help us get items back to the shelf quicker!
- New software will allow you to manage your library account using a credit or debit card!
We are freeing our staff up to give you the best possible library experience. The new technology will allow us to do more with our people, like help you find a great book or run a library program.
Self-Check machines will be installed in late November/early December. All changes are expected to be completed in February of next year.
Our new library project is in full swing! We are happy to be testing out some of our new tools and strategies here so we can offer two great libraries—West and downtown.
This process will take a few months and we know it may be an inconvenience at times–for that we apologize! The end result will be a library equipped with the tools to provide you with the best library experience possible. The cost for this project is funded through a federal grant we received in 2009.
