The Central Acquisitions Program helps participating Wyoming libraries gain access to volume discounts and other benefits typically unavailable to smaller libraries through such vendors as Ingram, Baker & Taylor, and Midwest Tape. Once an account is created and funded, the participating library is able to purchase library materials and services at a substantial savings of up to 40%. In addition, participating libraries can save on administrative and staffing costs by taking advantage of the program’s direct invoicing and payment services.
All orders are shipped directly to the libraries, while the invoicing and payment processes are handled by program staff. These services are offered for any vendor the participating library chooses. Detailed monthly status reports are provided for each account, but information can also be obtained at any time by contacting program staff.
