"Thanks to Simple Little Library system, our pupils have completely re-engaged with the library and a love of books. The children can search for the titles they want to read online and our library monitors will sign out the title and deliver it to their class. As a staff, using SLLS, we can see which titles the children are reading, track who is regularly reading and those who might need some support in finding a genre or author to ignite their passion. Teachers can use the reports to track reading trends in the class, meaning we can prove our pupils have a love of reading and are accessing texts at the appropriate level to them. SLLS is simple to use but highly effective. We would highly recommend to anyone."

"We moved from a large, corporate-driven management system, focused on selling you further products. The difference in SLLS is having very similar product without the commercialism and it has cost saving benefits. We love its simplicity, with the ability to carry out tasks in a straightforward, logical way."

Rachel White, Librarian

Gilbert Inglefield Academy

We ended up with a brilliantly simple, user friendly, logical system that is adaptable to any end user. The system is fun to use and the students love the fact that they can communicate with the library - I love the fact that it automatically reminds them of their overdue books.  Simple little things that make a librarian’s life so much easier.

Helen Polydorou, Librarian

"This has has been a fantastic experience especially when there is no dedicated librarian. The kids love it as they can browse for, return and reserve books on their iPads anywhere in the school. Simplicity is the keyword here. This is the simplest library system I have used. Easy to setup, easy to configure and easy to manage. We were looking a flexible system that adapts to the needs of our school and we found it."

Philip Palmer, ICT Network Manager
