Sacramento Public Library Launches Its Newly Designed Website

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sacramento Public Library is proud to unveil its newly designed website at New features such as major search improvements and a cleaner and more modern design will connect thousands of patrons not only to books and media but also to events, research tools, self-publishing tools, and event facilities.

Library staff worked with PMC, a Rancho Cordova–based municipal services agency, to simplify and streamline the website, which is viewed by more than 356,000 library visitors per month. The new website features improved navigation and site search to connect Sacramento readers to their favorite books and stories before they even leave the house. This includes a "virtual shelf" of recommended books, a revolving slideshow of library events and services, and an online library newsletter to which the public may subscribe for free.

"We looked at many other library sites and incorporated strategies that would benefit our patrons. I love how it looks now! People can now find what they're looking for easily, and it's easier for our staff to manage," said Rivkah K. Sass, library director.

"The new library website helps promote our upcoming events, news bulletins, and new and existing services with large slideshows on the main pages that are easy to display and manage. It's now easier to search for particular library events, and we can display events just for kids or teens on their web pages," stated Amy Calhoun, electronic resources librarian.
