Lend anything and everything they need to succeed.

Your library supports your community with more than just books and articles. From museum passes to yoga kits, you support all aspects of their lives. Make items outside your traditional catalog browsable and easy to find with simple reservation software, LendingKey and MuseumKey.

Opportunities to have impact are endless.

Offer reservations for less traditional items with LendingKey.

As more people are spending time at home these days, many are exploring new hobbies or picking up new skills. Offer them the nonbook resources they need, like your WiFi hotspots, the fancy video camera, or the croquet set. LendingKey is the premier Library of Things reservation and management solution that gets these items into users’ hands (and backyards and dorm rooms). LendingKey integrates seamlessly with both MuseumKey and your ILS so that reservations appear in your circulation statistics.

Maximize your museum pass investment with MuseumKey.

Simplify museum pass reservations through your library's website and let users browse a responsive calendar by museum or by date. With MuseumKey, your staff can redirect the effort they spend on coordinating and managing museum passes to other projects. The site handles user authentication and email notifications, and it includes usage statistics to show value.
