Lyngsoe Systems acquired FKI Logistex Library Solutions in 2009, and has since then aided hundreds of libraries around the world in optimizing them to achieve a healthier environment and better service no matter the size of the libraries.

Newton Free Library Installs Automatic Material Check-In Sorter To Read RFID Tagged Materials
Last month Newton Free Library announced their new Automatic Materials Check-in/Sorter installation. By tagging all materials with Radio Frequency ID tags (RFID), the sorter will immediately recognize the items coming through and check them in, while sorting them into bins for reservations and shelving.
“These changes will allow library staff to spend more time providing essential one-on-one customer service and less time on routine tasks that can lead to repetitive stress injuries”, said Library Director Pill McNulty.He continued: "The new automated materials check-in system will allow us to handle books and other items more efficiently, getting them into your hands sooner than before".
We are happy to be a part of future proofing Newton Free Library the public library of Newton, Massachusetts.
