  • I have never had a bad experience with MOREnet or its staff! They are wonderful, helpful, and enthusiastic about their work! I can't imagine not having them as a resource. I have taken several classes and don't know where I would have received that vital training had it not been for MOREnet. Love love love the databases and resources they offer to our school! – K12 Member
  • The support staff is awesome! I am always impressed with their knowledge, efficiency, personality, and professionalism!!! – K12 Member
    The services MOREnet offers to our library system is vital. We could not provide the level of service to our patrons if we did not have the support, services, and technology available through our membership.

  • MOREnet is a valuable, TRUSTED business partner for our district. You provide a number of services we could not otherwise afford. – Higher Education Member
