"We are thrilled to incorporate FrontDesk with our library. FrontDesk allows residents to make appointments online for a variety of services available at the local library. Residents can choose to schedule to meet with a librarian for resume assistance, make an appointment with a tutor or social worker, and even schedule license plate renewals. The FrontDesk platform is available in multiple languages, encouraging all members of the community to utilize the resources and services that are available to them. The Caseyville Public Library is now able to offer services more efficiently while maintaining the health and safety of the staff and the community. Libraries (public, academic, special) strive to meet the evolving needs of diverse communities and this partnership with FrontDesk and ISCRA allows us to do that."

ISCRA is a comprehensive platform where technology providers, together with, city staff and local elected officials converge to discuss the development and deployment potential of networked technologies on top a city’s existing infrastructure. These objectives are performed in an effort to reduce a community’s operating costs, drive efficiencies, and establish sustainable models intent on impacting the quality of life for all citizens and businesses while pushing Illinois to become one of the few smart States in the USA."
