RFID Comes to Johnson City Public Library
The Johnson City Public Library is seeking volunteers to help with the implementation of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. RFID will allow the library to have self checkout stations for patrons and easier inventory maintenance. Volunteers will assist in tagging/scanning all materials within the library. This project began in mid-August and will take a few months to complete.
