Patron Services

Patron Services

The traditional concept of a librarian is being redefined.

Librarians today are teachers, advocates, friends, technology experts, and content creators. Working with Unique – a proven partner of libraries – allows library staff to be all these things and more, without sacrificing the excellent service your patrons have come to expect. Let Unique handle the day-to-day tasks so your staff can focus on the high-level activities that allow libraries to not only exist, but thrive. We can bridge the divide from service today to service tomorrow.
