Clinton Public Library

Edge has enabled Clinton Public Library to serve the digital needs of their community by prioritizing the development of a more tech-savvy staff.

Alexander County Library

Before using Edge, the library lacked the concrete data it needed to make a case for additional funding from the county. After the library began using Edge, it was able to show county commissioners how greater financial support could help the library to empower the community, leading to a greater budget as well as the county’s support in the library’s application for a Library Services and Technology Act grant.

Baker County Library

Edge enabled the Baker County Library to efficiently identify services adopted by peer libraries and match them to BCL’s needs with a level of focus it had never experienced before. Edge also motivated BCL to implement key staffing policy changes to enhance productivity, including monthly staff training sessions for library technology.

Calaveras County Library

Calaveras County Library used its Edge Assessment to improve wireless connectivity and digital services for its patrons. The library partnered with California State Libraries in an effort to improve existing technology, programs and services, receiving a $90,000 grant from Califa, a nonprofit membership consortium of 220 California Libraries.

Madison County Public Libraries

Through Edge, MCPL built partnerships to improve its digital leadership offerings. The library built strong ties with Madison County Schools to engage educators and students to develop summer reading programs and other tools to develop a love of reading in students, as well as offering eLibrary cards for students in grades four through 12.

Mifflin County Library

Mifflin County Public Library used Edge to revamp its technology offerings and planning process. They have also used the Edge tool for media coverage on radio and in newspapers, which led to a partnership that updates the whole community on progress with Edge.

Oak Park Public Library

Oak Park Public Library used Edge data and resources to shape the library's strategic planning around technology and ensure that all community members have access to resources and services needed to succeed. The library has also used Edge to address early childhood digital behavior and literacy, partnering with Oak Park schools to pilot coding programs for girls, and embedding a librarian in the local high school.
