continued With CASSIE and SPOT, an accurate record of computer use is logged each day providing the library with reliable statistics on the number of people served and how the library may improve their services. Additionally, these statistics are vital for grant applications or other funding opportunities for the library. Only a record of computer and wireless use will be kept; there is no change in patron’s privacy as a result of using CASSIE or SPOT.
“In the few weeks since we added these programs, we have been pleasantly surprised at the astonishing number of recorded hours,” states Library Director Betsy Kennedy. “It’s at least double what we estimated.”
The Constable Fund has made these new programs possible. In recent years, this Fund has also made possible the purchase of three laptops, two iPads, and the e-Readers Nook and Kindle. Besides technology, the Constable Fund also made possible the library’s beautiful new sign on Albany Street.
