Bibliobox

...returning books is so easy

Moravian Library in Brno, the Czech Republic

Bibliobox represents an alternative to the usual book return, and solves issues around returning books in the case of technical problems. By buying Bibliobox the library has allowed readers to return books 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Every day about 300 books are returned by Bibliobox.

The opportunity to return books anytime, even outside library opening hours, is obviously welcomed by readers since the offered service avoids them paying a charge for late returns.

The shorter lines at the check-in desk is the benefit for the library staff, and this mainly at the beginning of the academic year when they can consequently pay more attention to new readers.

Even though this was not a goal of the library, Bibliobox serves as a tool by which the library can get new titles from readers/donors.
