As buildings reopen fully and mask mandates are lifted, your patrons might be nervous to be indoors and around other people... especially in your buildings. LibCal Seats and Spaces allows patrons to reserve their preferred library space or individual seat, check-in/out, and feel a bit more in control - in these out of control times.

We'll Cover:

  • Enabling patrons to view available spaces and individual seats and reserve from the comfort of their home. 
  • Checking-in & out right from their smartphone limiting unnessary social interactions.
  • Allowing building managers and staff to configure availability slots and allow extra cleaning time after each reservation.
  • Viewing and managing bookings inclduind real-time building capacity, and quickly removing spaces/seats if needed.
