Tools > Activity

Activity is an optional Alexandria integration. Contact our Sales Team if you're interested in adding it to your library!

Activity is an unattended kiosk interface that allows you to keep count of patron visits, volunteers, and event attendees. Information gathered from Activity can be presented to administrators or funding sources for planning and budgeting purposes.

How to Use Activity

1. Type or scan a patron barcode and click Enter.

2. In the top left corner, the patron's picture, name, and number of in-stock holds will pop up. Patrons can then select their reason and click Confirm in the top right corner. They can also click Cancel to enter a different patron barcode.

3. After clicking Confirm, a notice will flash at the bottom of the screen showing the patron's name and date.

Then you're good to go! Alexandria will keep track of recorded names, reasons, dates, and times. 


Run the Activity Summary report to get information on how often your library is being used and for what reason. It will generate a list of dates, patron names, and activity reasons for a specified time period. This could be presented to administrators to help inform event and budgeting decisions.


In Activity Preferences, you can customize the reasons patrons are visiting your library.
