How It Works.

Not just library software.

Whilst you can purchase Abracadabra library software on its own, schools prefer to opt for our start to finish complete data take on services or the one day intensive training installation and training day.

Entering all your book details...

Schools will often underestimate the task of entering in all the data about the books in their library.  This task can take up to and more than 6 months. 

On-site expertise

Whilst we are on-site you are free to exploit our expertise in library computerisation.  As your library is ready in about 3 days the training you receive is ready to use immediatley. 

Abracadabra library system.

By keeping the software simple and focusing on the core day-to-day activities we have ensured it's easy to use.  Often, there is the temptation to keep adding feature after feature for no real reason - we chose not to follow this route.

“ A simple and effective library system which children can take charge of. Efficient, friendly back up support when needed. The children enjoy using the scanner and can't wait for their turn as librarian ”Mrs Heap, St Thomas Primary, Blackburn
“I like to see who has the book that I want so that I can ask them about it at playtime ”Pupil, St Thomas Primary, Blackburn
