“It’s good to find rural meeting places that are still open. It strengthens the sense of community. More municipalities should get Axiell Aperio into their branches instead of closing them down.”

Go mobile, extend your reach

Using Axiell’s Digital Library tools, libraries are perfectly equipped to engage with their communities in a way that is in line with the needs and habits of the user, whether that is within normal working ours, or late at night; online or in the library.  Faster mobile broadband speeds are driving mobile usage such that even 55-64 year olds are joining the smartphone revolution, with ownership doubling for this demographic since 2012.
