Modern Technology Solutions in a Public Library
Telsiai Karolinos Praniauskaites Public Library
In August 2016 in Telsiai, the capital of the culture of Lithuania, a new and modernly reconstructed Telsiai Karolinos Praniauskaites Public Library was opened. During the reconstruction not only the premises of the library were renovated, but also RFID technology system for library was installed with integrated registration system LIBIS, security systems and access control.
In the renovated library, Hansab, together with Versina, installed Bibliotheca RFID system which consists of book protection security gates with the calculator of people, self-service book issue and return terminals, inventory device, the equipment of the workplace of the personnel and RFID reader.
Having installed this system, visitors will be able to independently borrow and return books. The personnel of the library will be able to service readers much faster and more qualitatively, to perform inventory faster.
The books in the library will be protected with the help of the security system of RFID gates. In addition, fire alarm, access control and intrusion systems and voice evacuation systems have been installed, to eliminate the emergency state of the building. Access control allows the separation of the personnel of the library from the visitor flows, whereas fire alarm systems ensure the safety of visitors and the building during mass events.
