Adding Functionality to Your Website

Engagedpatrons.org was created for public libraries to add functionality to their websites that will encourage community interaction.  Each service is meant to be easily added to your website – no programming necessary.  Currently, they are offering:

  • Library Events — also includes searching, online registration, email alerts for patrons, RSS feeds
  • Library Blogs — basic blog functionality, but can look like your library’s website
  • Google Maps Mashup — Use Google Maps to show maps/locations on your website
  • Contact form
  • RSS feeds
  • Custom Web-enabled Databases — if you have a local database you’d like to have available via the web, they can help.

All of these services are free to public libraries that receive less than $1,000,000 in total income per year.
