Simple Little Library System history

In the late 1990s, Penny Bailey developed her first library automation system, PenLib, because she was frustrated by the user experience of the existing library automation systems she came across. Most were built for large academic and public libraries so Penny developed PenLib for small to medium sized libraries.

Launched in 2018, so it’s tried and tested

Launched in 2018, Simple Little Library System is a re-write of PenLib using modern browser based technology. Our library automation system is fully responsive for mobiles, tablets, laptops and computers.
Simple Little Library System retains all the loved features of PenLib and adds new functionality combined with a fresh new intuitive user interface.
