About Us

Bailey Solutions incorporated in 2002 and specialises in library and information management software. Our Managing Director and founder, Penny Bailey had a previous career as a librarian and worked in academic and workplace libraries as both employee and self-employed consultant.

Penny developed her first library system, PenLib, because she was frustrated by the user experience of the existing systems she came across. The company has since developed two further systems KnowAll LMS and Enquire, and Simple Little Library System to cater for different requirements.

KnowAll is the only library software to be short listed for: International Industry Awards 2006 - Best Product for Libraries
