Based in Marin County, north of San Francisco, California, Belvedere Tiburon Library has served the Belvedere and Tiburon communities since 1929. The library’s unique governance structure under a joint power agreement is led by members from the community and school districts. With the help of local dedicated citizen, the new Belvedere Tiburon Library opened its doors in 1997 with the goal of bringing world-class library services to their community.
With a stock of over 75,000 books, Belvedere Tiburon Library’s need for an efficient and affordable technology solution was critical. They needed a solution that was reliable, fast and simple enough to support the operations of their community and employees.
They decided that transitioning Belvedere Tiburon Library to a Chrome-based solution would be the best way to approach the problem. After the transition, their daily operations have considerably improved its speed and efficiency. Ivan stated, “We’ve saved time and we’ve saved resources by deploying an economical solution to handle our public kiosks.” The library’s staff now has far more insight, control and flexibility than they did with their previous solution.
