Patron Point Announces First Library to Launch Its FOLIO Integration

Patron Point announced that Spokane Public Library in Washington launched Patron Point’s integration with the FOLIO library services platform. The company calls this “a market first.”

“From the start, we have been supportive of FOLIO’s mission to bring a modern, open source ILS to public libraries. At the same time, we didn’t want to lose Patron Point’s ability to deliver state-of-the-art patron notices and real-time marketing programs. So, it was a key goal to make sure the FOLIO-Patron Point infrastructure was operational from day one,” says Andrew Chanse, executive director of Spokane Public Library.

“With our partnership with Spokane Public Library and FOLIO we have made an exciting addition to our portfolio of ILS partners. Having a marketing platform that integrates with any ILS is important to a library so that if and when they change their system, they can retain all of their patron engagement data and continue to engage their customers without losing their granular engagement history,” says Ian Downie, VP of growth at Patron Point.
