Nashville, Here We Come!


We're ready to go, and looking forward to seeing attendees of the 2020 Public Library Association this week.  Though there are hundreds of vendors to visit, head straight to booth 945 - that's us, Quipu Group! The whole gang will be there, and we want to hear about your triumphs of 2019 and the challenges ahead in 2020. 

ePASS Glows in the City of Brotherly Love


When the Free Library of Philadelphia began planning for the implementation and launch of ePASS, known as Experience Pass locally, staff knew that this new offering would delight their customers. With a dozen institutions at launch, including the internationally famous Rosenbach and very creepy Eastern State Penitentiary Historic site, Philadelphians have even more incentive to explore their city and cultural sites. Philadelphians ages 18 and above can use their Free Library cards to check out free digital passes to attractions and experiences around the city.

Jamie Bowers, Electronic Resources Coordinator, shared her experience with launching Experience Pass. "Working with Quipu has been great. Their customer service is spectacular and they have been willing and able to explore new solutions with us to satisfy our institutional needs. The launch of our Experience Pass program was a success due, in no small part, to the support and guidance from Quipu. Highly recommended." 

Dallas Public Library and Toledo Lucas Public Library have also joined the Quipu family of ePASS customers in recent months. Check it out!

Quipu Customers Making Headlines!


Frisco Public Library (TX) was named the Top Innovator in Customer Experience in the nation for the library’s artificial intelligence project. The annual award by the Urban Libraries Council recognizes innovative programs and practices from libraries across North America. The library now offers 29 different maker kits, ranging from a Tello Drone to a Harry Potter Coding Wand.

“We celebrate Frisco Public Library for presenting a groundbreaking initiative that is sure to transform the community and inspire libraries across North America,” said Urban Libraries Council President and CEO Susan Benton. 

Congratulations Frisco Public Library!

Wizard of the World Wide Web

Many thanks to Quipu customer RAILS (Reaching Across Illinois Library Systems) for developing this fantastic video, created for Library Lovers Day by Imagination!
Libraries are more important than ever in the age of the Internet, where misinformation, pop-up ads and distractions run rampant. Even as the Wizard of the World Wide Web tries to regain control of the world's knowledge, libraries reign supreme with the personal help and resources they provide.
