Spring Conference update

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…

Upcoming Trade Shows

February 1, 2013

The days are getting longer, the sun is higher, and its time to print business cards and reserve booth space. This is good. So, far, it looks like Massachusetts  New Jersey, Illinois, and maybe event Montana. Right.

We’ll try and keep you posted.




TixKeeper @ The Library Network

We’re happy to announce that TixKeeper, our web based application for managing museum passes, is now being used by about 150 Michigan libraries. The Library Network, the largest library cooperative in the state, and Plymouth Rocket, Inc. saw TixKeeper go live over the Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks to the good folks at TLN for working with us to make this happen.

PLA 2012

March 22, 2012

We’re just back from Philadelphia. Many thanks to everyone who stopped by to visit us at Booth 237.

This conference is always a good experience, as we meet up with a combination of existing customers and with people who may have never heard of us. You come away feeling pretty affirmed that we are on the right track, but also with a collection of helpful and insightful comments that might take us in new directions. All good.

Aside from a 3 fire alarm event at our hotel on Thursday night, Philadelphia was just great. Had a Boston feel to it; easier to walk, when possible, than to drive. A return is in order.

Again, thanks to all who visited with us.
