[Libs-Or] Book club Kits scheduling?

We don't do scheduling for our book club kits; they check out just like any other item.  The loan period is 6 weeks, and of course with Polaris they are able to schedule their hold into the future to try and plan for a particular time period.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Book club Kits scheduling?


We are getting ready to start our Book Club in a Bag program and wonder how Kitkeeper has worked for any libraries out there, or are there other scheduling systems?  And have any libraries used it with Polaris? It appears many libraries use an Excel file with staff scheduling the kits.  We're starting with 100 bags for our 15 branch system and hoping to find a system  that doesn't require staff scheduling.  Thanks for any suggestions.
