Community Engagement

Our purpose is to bring enrichment and foster engagement within, and between Libraries and their broader communities.

We bring content and discover tools to enable libraries to provide patrons with dynamic and vibrant environments acting as local portals to the wider world, enriched by reading, learning, and inspired by information and ideas.

Accelerated Circulation Plan 

The Smarter Way To Keep Up With Demand

James Bennett’s Accelerated Circulation Plan is an end-to-end solution which boosts circulation by meeting demand when it is at its peak; then when demand drops you return the books, freeing up staff and resources.



  • Popular titles available to on release.
  • ACP is priced as a subscription model to drive down ‘cost-per-circulation’ and mostly pre-paid to help reduce the number of invoices to process.
  • Keep books for 5-6 months, or until demand drops, then simply return to us.



  • MAXIMISE circulation and MEET demand.
  • MINIMISE waiting time and hold queues.
  • ACP delivers demonstrated substantial return on investment.
  • Increased staff and patron engagement across entire collection.
  • Sustainably remove copies from collection.
