Spring means library conferences, and in particular for Plymouth Rocket it means upcoming trips to Denver, Long Island, Atlantic City, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and maybe someplace else. 

Not hardly sure. Denver is exciting mostly because it’s PLA, and consequently a very big deal. Stop by to pick up a newly redesigned ruler, ok?


Travel update

January 2, 2015

In a couple of weeks Plymouth Rocket will be off to visit Toronto and the Ontario Library Association Super Conference. We’re excited, as this trip is our first to a Canadian library conference.

We hear great things about Toronto!

NYLA 2013

October 6, 2013

We just returned from NYLA at Niagara Falls. Great show.

The take away? Public libraries are focused on content that can be shared on mobile devices of all kinds; content that is simple to push out, easily edited, and focused on the needs of patrons and customers.

Off next to Chicago, Portland ME, and Seven Springs, PA.

Spring Conference update

May 31, 2013

Plymouth Rocket, Inc. on the road; Ric headed to Newport RI for RILA, and Jim to Atlantic City for NJLA and on up to Long Island for a library fund raising event. Hope we have enough rulers!

Plymouth Rocket, Inc. and the Prison Book Program

May 30, 2013

Prison Book Program of Quincy, MA provides a life line of literature to people incarcerated across the United States. Locating paperbacks in good enough condition to pass muster is not always easy; a couple of weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to get in on the tail-end of the annual book sale at the Ventress Memorial Library of Marshfield MA. 

Six boxes of good books and one trip to Quincy later, the program was able to partially re-stock its shelves, and continue its good work of sending books into prisons.

Prison Book is not unique to Quincy, so check in your area for similar opportunities.


Conference update

May 5, 2013

We just completed attending the Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Long Island library conferences. Always great meeting up with current subscribers and folks interested in our software. Thanks to all of the organizers and conference committees for managing three very successful gatherings.

New Yorkers for Better Libraries Gala

March 5, 2013

Last night Ric and I traveled to Albany for the New Yorkers for Better Libraries Annual Fundraising Gala, held at the Marriott on Wolf Road.

As one of two vendor sponsors, we were pleased and excited to take part in an energetic, forward looking event intended to raise awareness and funding for NY public libraries.

We plan on returning in 2014…
