Last year, the West Caldwell Public Library launched the meeScan self-checkout tool at the library. MeeScan is a cloud-based self-checkout system that allows you to use your smartphones, tablets, or a library provided iPad to check out materials anywhere in the library. The system uses the built-in camera of your smartphone or tablet to scan the item barcode, allowing for quicker service. meeScan is user-friendly, simple to setup, and helps limit long wait times!
