Library Software for Communities

Our library software is practical and affordable for town and community libraries serving their locality.

Affordable and easy to use library software

If you’re running a community library, our system is the ideal choice. Your borrowers can search the user-friendly online catalogue from almost anywhere, place reservations, and even self-loan using the dedicated Check-In/Check-Out screen.

Meanwhile, our AutoCat tool will populate the records in your catalogue using just an ISBN,  by downloading data from several reliable online sources. Your latest acquisitions will be online and visible to your borrowers in no time.

Our reporting tools will let you track borrowers’ habits and keep on top of auditing your collection. What’s more, there are no set-up costs and no limitations on the number of library users. It’s a great system that gives you the flexibility to grow.

“We picked Bailey Solutions’ Simple Little Library System for our Community Hub and Library rather than a much larger rival. SLLS ticked all the requirement boxes we needed in terms of library functionality, is fully cloud based which was an essential and was reasonably priced. What we were not expecting was the excellent post-sale support, plus the willingness and speed with which Bailey were able to respond to requests for changes. This feels like a company that looks after their customers and we would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Andy Webb, The Station Master’s House (Birkdale Community Hub and Library)

“As a small retirement Village Library, we had some doubts about going digital but we need not have worried. Implementing the system was surprisingly easy despite having 2,500 books to put the unique bar codes on. The technical support has been excellent with no question too simple or difficult and a very quick response. We recommend SLLS for anyone thinking about it the free trial convinced us as it enabled us to see if we were capable of implementing a digital library.”
