ByWater Solutions, an open source community supporter and provider of Libki support, announced today that the Roseville Public Library in Roseville, California has chosen ByWater to support their installation of the Libki open source kiosk management system.
Roseville Public Library will be using Libki to manage their 30+ public computers.
Chris Rhode, Library Supervisor, Technology & Support Services, commented: "Libki will allow us to offer more consistent self-service options for our customers. By choosing an open source reservation system, the library will be able to customize the system to our needs through future developments and support in the open source community. This will let the technology grow with demands as our customer's needs change over time. We are very excited to work with ByWater on another open source system that will take our library to the next level in customer service."
Kyle Hall, Development Support Specialist at ByWater Solutions and the creator of Libki commented on the newest library to make the switch:
"It's fantastic to have yet another library adopting Libki to replace a proprietary solution! I'm certain that Roseville will be a satisfied partner!"
