Online room booking & payment software for libraries

You can use LemonBooking to manage all the spaces and equipment at your library — from meeting & conference rooms, exhibition spaces or BIPC facilities to things like computer resources, print services and audio/visual equipment.

User-friendly room booking software

The system is user-friendly for staff and customers, WCAG compliant, highly customisable and includes features designed specifically for public libraries. For example you can collect information from customers about room setup/layout and public liability insurance, track whether PREVENT checks have been carried out and take online payments with integrations to CivicaPay, Pay360, WorldPay and others.

You can also configure different pricing tiers and tax rates (e.g. free for library staff, no VAT for council staff, full price for external customers) as well as special payment methods/options for certain customers (e.g. allow internal customers to pay with a cost centre code and large organisations to pay by invoice).

Equipment & services

You can also use the LemonBooking booking system to schedule and track the equipment you hire/loan out and to charge for additional services like printing and refreshments.

  • Avoid double-bookings

    As with facilities - LemonBooking will automatically check for double bookings when patrons request equipment and services. All you have to do is indicate how many/much of each resource is available.

  • Flexible pricing rules

    You can choose from a range of pricing options for your equipment and services including per session, per participant, per day and of course — resources that are free to use.

Reporting dashboard Performance at a glance

The LemonBooking reporting dashboard provides a quick overview of your library's performance. It allows you to instantly analyse booking and customer data, and generate detailed reports on occupancy rates and financial performance for all rooms.

“ LemonBooking has been an incredible tool for Buckinghamshire Libraries to manage room bookings across 11 locations. Hannah and Paul have been very attentive to our requirements, making sure the system is customised to meet the needs of our staff and customers. Read more Response rates to queries and issues have been very efficient which has helped maintain good customer experience. Leading up to the launch of LemonBooking our staff were confident in operating the system due to the excellent training package offered which included access to recordings, the Help Centre and online sessions. Overall there has been a vast improvement to Buckinghamshire Libraries room hire service due to the ability we now have for customers to self-serve and make payments online.
