(Indianapolis – January 14th, 2022) – myLIBRO, a leading full-service library app that integrates with libraries’ ILS systems to enable seamless delivery and management of contactless and in-library services,is pleased to announce it has received a platinum award in LibraryWorks’ eighth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs) for the second consecutive year.

The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry in a truly unbiased format. Products and services were submitted in the fall using a simple application, and then were posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. These products were batched into small groups and sent to the LibraryWorks database of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience with these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score. 

Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer service, etc.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by LibraryWorks and librarians around the country as a top product and service in the library industry for the second year in a row,” said Director of Sales, Mike Rossetti. “We believe libraries are the core of every community. We are driven to develop solutions to help them better manage the day to day and improve patron experiences while navigating challenges brought on by COVID-19. This Platinum distinction speaks volumes to the hard work and dedication of our team to deliver on this mission.”

myLIBRO is a trailblazer in the library space, expanding upon curbside features developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic with the release of myLIBRO 3.0 in 2021, an update of the app that includes a newly designed user experience and new features. It has been distributed in over 400 of libraries globally with over 89,000 users (library staff and patrons). Its preeminent features are:

  • Audiobooks & Book Recommendations – Pro-active suggestions for patrons (ie Popular Books, New Arrivals, Books You May Like) & access to a full library of audiobooks.
  • Enhanced Scheduling Capabilities – Intuitive scheduling for contactless pickup & hybrid library services, improving the patron & staff experience.
  • Self-Checkout – Completely contactless checkout lets patrons checkout materials by simply scanning the barcode.
  • Push Notifications – Optimized view of events, news, important updates and more, allowing patrons to stay up to date on all things 24/7.

Jenny Newman, publisher and MLA program manager said, “It has been so exciting to watch the growth of myLIBRO over the last couple of years as it’s taken off in libraries across the country. It is evident that their customers are very pleased with the impact myLIBRO has had on their community and overall operation of their libraries.”
