GOSHEN -- The Goshen Public Library's board of trustees agreed Friday to pursue purchasing an radio frequency identification system.
Andrew Waters, library director, said that construction and installation should be finished by summer.
The system will allow centralized checkout, near the main entrance, and self-checkout. It will also allow for employees to more easily locate materials within the library.
The system is a 3M product purchased through SirsiDynix, a library technology company. The system will cost between $120,000 and $125,000 or less.
Waters had said at a past board meeting that it's a big investment for the library but should help free up some employees to help in other areas.
