Library Website

intuitive & unique websites
Woodridge Public Library's Website

Libraries spend too much time and money on their collections and resources to leave them at the mercy of outdated websites. Provide your existing and potential patrons access to your services with an elegantly designed and easy-to-navigate portal. Give your staff the tools to maintain and grow the website as the library explores its next chapter. Library Market’s innovative websites supply you with the means to showcase the things that matter most to your community. 

Library Market delivers a great product, with great value, on time. Ben, Matt, Steven, and the team excel at listening to our input and wishes and are masters at interpreting those requests to design a great looking site that is accessible, user-friendly, and sustainable. They firmly, but flexibly, guided our vision to become something better than we imagined.

The entire team at Library Market have been invaluable throughout the development process; from the content gathering to the site design to the support after we launched - we couldn't be happier with them and our new website.  

Elegant Design

Accessible layouts and clean, consistent design ensure that our websites are intuitive and easy for patrons to use.

Renders on any Device

Responsive design equalizes website functionality and experience for mobile, tablet, and desktop users. 

Integrated Search

Website and ILS-integrated catalog search appears prominently on every page and allows users to quickly find library materials and resources.

Custom Content

Library-specific content types and custom views allow for easy, ongoing site management with no coding or web development experience required. 

Access Control

Granular user roles allow library staff to have specific access and editing control over website functions directly related to their duties.

Library Calendar

A calendar should be a useful tool, not a stumbling block, in the process of engaging your community in library programs. Give your patrons an intuitive interface for finding and registering for the events that interest them. Allow community organizations to schedule and request room reservations anytime and anywhere. Provide your staff the means to seamlessly manage the events they put so much effort into creating. Library Calendar is a flexible, tailored time and room management solution that allows libraries to more fully engage their users.

The Library Calendar's responsive design was critical for our website. With a growing number of people looking at our website solely from their phones or tablets, having a fully functional and well-designed mobile calendar not only engages more patrons but also encourages them to come through our doors.

Integrated System

Schedule individual and series events in a centralized management system that eliminates room conflicts. 

Room Reservations

Allow community members to request meeting rooms online based on your library's room use policies.

Event Registration

Enable online event registrations for programs with easy management of room capacities, wait lists, and event reminders.

Flexible Design

Customize your calendar based on your branding guidelines, event categories, age groups, branches, hours, and more. 

Fully Responsive

Display events feed, program details, and all forms beautifully and functionally across desktops, tablet, and mobile platforms.

Easy Reports

Generate and download reports for room requests, room setups, event registrations, and more from the user dashboard.

Library Branding & Marketing
Henderson Libraries' Brand Guide

Whether creating a new library logo or designing an entire branding package, Library Market can help you increase your visibility through elegant, effective marketing and design.
