-The [[http://www.westminsterlibrary.org|Westminster Public Library]] was the primary sponsor of ReadingRecord as it began to grow, hosting it free of charge for small libraries in the state of Colorado.  WPL has used Linux & open source software for over 15 years to provide a wide range of services to staff and the public.  Part of the open source philosophy involves giving back to the community, and we felt this was a good opportunity to do so.  Rather than create another in-house only system, we wanted something that could be used by other libraries as well.+The [[http://www.westminsterlibrary.org|Westminster Public Library]] was the primary sponsor of ReadingRecord as it began to grow, hosting it free of charge for small libraries in the state of Colorado.  WPL has used Linux & open source software for over 20 years to provide a wide range of services to staff and the public.  Part of the open source philosophy involves giving back to the community, and we felt this was a good opportunity to do so.  Rather than create another in-house only system, we wanted something that could be used by other libraries as well.
  
 In 2015 the Colorado State Library began sponsoring ReadingRecord for Colorado libraries.  Those libraries eligible for free hosting were migrated from servers run by the WPL to servers operated by Limited North LLC, owned by Eric Sisler.  The migration was transparent and remained in place until the end of 2015.  In 2016 libraries in Colorado eligible for free hosting will begin using the 'readingrecord.net' domain rather than the 'readingrecord.org' domain owned by WPL.  Other than this change ReadingRecord will continue to function as it has in previous years. In 2015 the Colorado State Library began sponsoring ReadingRecord for Colorado libraries.  Those libraries eligible for free hosting were migrated from servers run by the WPL to servers operated by Limited North LLC, owned by Eric Sisler.  The migration was transparent and remained in place until the end of 2015.  In 2016 libraries in Colorado eligible for free hosting will begin using the 'readingrecord.net' domain rather than the 'readingrecord.org' domain owned by WPL.  Other than this change ReadingRecord will continue to function as it has in previous years.
