Integrate contactless, click-and-collect services with this automated, user-friendly solution

Libraries are an essential part of each community, providing valuable resources and services to those in need.  

Smart lockers provide a contact-free, curbside means of delivering resources to patrons around-the-clock, at their convenience. It’s an easy-to-use solution that works as a standalone system or integrated with popular library management systems via API. And it’s secure enough to safeguard high-value electronics.

“When I was looking for a curbside holds and delivery solution during the pandemic, Smiota was quick to respond and flexible to work with. They understood the need and developed a workflow that would hold library books and deliver them to our patrons. 24/7 pickup is an excellent service even in good times.”

The benefits of bringing lockers into circulation

Support contactless, curbside checkouts

With smart lockers, patrons can pick up items they’ve signed out without interacting with library staff or touching a shared screen. 


Hold for safety

Library staff can store items securely in lockers for the recommended 72-hour period to help curb the spread of pathogens.

Save space, add convenience

When installed outside, smart lockers free up space at the circulation desk and allow patrons to pick up and return items when it’s most convenient for them. This way, they can return books on time and avoid late fees.

Avoid dropoff damage

Using lockers as an alternative to drop boxes protects books and other items from damage and prevents them from being mixed in with other returns.

Simplify your  
checkouts and returns workflow 

It takes no time at all to install smart lockers, train staff, and set up API integrations. Smiota’s lockers work as both a standalone solution or alongside library management systems to: 

  • Streamline and manage transactions
  • Send notifications, reminders, and access codes to patrons
  • Track real-time measurable outcomes for locker use, pickup efficiency, and chain of custody — all in one web portal
