Johnson County Library will close the Cedar Roe Neighborhood Library, 5120 Cedar, Roeland Park, KS, on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 27 and 28, 2012, to install Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) equipment and add tags to all of the books and audiovisual materials at that library location. The exterior book drop will remain open during this time.
Johnson County Library is implementing RFID to improve the movement of materials between all 13 Johnson County Library locations. The RFID tags and equipment will also significantly reduce theft.
The installation of the RFID equipment has been completed at most other locations in early 2012. During the closing of the Cedar Roe Neighborhood Library in March, patrons are encouraged to visit other library locations. Library staff plans to have the system-wide RFID project completed by the end of April 2012.
Materials on hold at the Cedar Roe Neighborhood Library while it is closed will be extended a few extra days so patrons will be able to pick up those items when the building reopens.
The project will enable the following outcomes:
• Optimized self-service and enhanced patron experience
• Significant return on investment from self-service equipment
• Improved efficiency in all 13 library locations
