Cedar Rapids Library installs "Smart Barcodes" on materials

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- The Cedar Rapids Public Library has taken another step in the flood-recovery process.

During the floods of 2008, the library lost its automated check-out system. In 2009, the library received a grant to replace it.

Now, the staff has completed putting "smart barcodes" on each of the more than 100 thousand items it owns. The new system will streamline both the check-out and check-in process for library materials.

The library plans to have the new system running by mid-December.
