Mid-Continent Public Library Interview

We had the pleasure of speaking with Steve Potter, the Library Director and C.E.O. of Mid-Continent Public Library in Kansas City, Missouri.

Steve has been an influential customer for bibliotheca, keeping us focused on the functional needs and benefits our products can solve for the library industry. We learned a great deal from speaking with him and wanted to share his full interview, in hopes that it will pass on knowledge and help any libraries who are looking to implement a large scale RFID project.
