Indian River County Intergeneration Recreation Center

24-Hour Library™ Serves People of All Ages at the
Indian River County Intergeneration Recreation Center

Indian River County Library System in Florida had been interested in expanding services to an underserved area in the South end of the county for quite some time. After exploring numerous options, the Library found the ideal solution through a partnership with the County Parks and Recreation Department.

The new branch location, named The Vending Library, leverages EnvisionWare’s 24-Hour Library™ to deliver services within the County’s IRC Intergeneration Recreation Center (IG Center).

“The IG Center is located on a main East/West corridor in the South end of the county where we don’t currently have a branch,” said Library Director Tracey Wehking. “It’s the perfect place to offer library services to this underserved area. The building is open 7 days a week and attracts a truly intergenerational mix of community members.”

Technology and Distribution Centers

Columbus, OhioEnvisionWare’s Columbus Technology Center (CTC) in Ohio has a new neighbor! We recently moved our Distribution Center from Atlanta to Columbus to streamline distribution from a central location within the United States and bring the technology and R&D teams closer together.

The new 16,000 sq. ft. facility stores over $2M in inventory and over 4,000 SKUs, enabling EnvisionWare to respond rapidly to deliver replacement parts. The technical teams also have everything they need on-hand to assemble new products for distribution, and the warehouse has a large staging area for big systems, including the 24-Hour Library™.
