Your patrons save money when they use your library. But are they aware of just how much? A new feature added in the latest upgrade to the WYLD system lets them know.

When enabled by libraries, a message will appear at the bottom of printed and emailed receipts tallying the total cost of the borrowed materials: “Congratulations! Borrowing from your library saved: $xxx.xx.” The value displayed is the sum of all item prices. This feature demonstrates the value of the library with every checkout.

Librarians are excited to share this information with their patrons — multiple WYLD libraries are already implementing this update! Contact the WYLD Office at the Wyoming State Library at to learn more.
