   * Download & run ReadingRecord for yourself:  Please note, this is not a task to be undertaken lightly. ReadingRecord is designed to be a hosted solution, meaning that a single site can host many libraries. As such, it requires some expertise to get up & running. In particular, familiarity with the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL & PHP) is essential.  Please see the [[docs:docs_start|documentation]].   * Download & run ReadingRecord for yourself:  Please note, this is not a task to be undertaken lightly.

-  * Join an organization already hosting ReadingRecord. My hope (and vision) is that some larger libraries will elect to host ReadingRecord for their state/region, as the Westminster Public Library has done for Colorado since 2008. Depending on the situation, I may donate my time or charge a modest fee to help these hosting sites get ReadingRecord up and running. If your organization is interested in hosting ReadingRecord for your state/region, please [[lbylnxgek@gmail.com|contact me]]. +  * Join an organization already hosting ReadingRecord.

-  * Contract with me to host ReadingRecord for your library. I charge a yearly fee of $150 to cover the cost of setup, hosting, Internet connectivity and to (hopefully) inspire me to develop new features.  If your library cannot afford this modest fee, please contact me & we'll haggle.  ;-)+  * Contract with me to host ReadingRecord for your library.

-===== Special discount for Colorado libraries ===== 
- 
-To promote the "1,000 books before Kindergarten" program, the Colorado State Library is funding the cost of using ReadingRecord to track participation for **the first 20 libraries in Colorado** who sign up for this offer.  To further promote both this great program and the use of ReadingRecord, I am offering a 50% discount to CO libraries who choose to use the 1,000 books before kindergarten program but are not eligible for free hosting of regular reading programs (see above).  Simply use ReadingRecord to track participation in your 1,000 books before Kindergarten program and get ReadingRecord to track your other programs for $75/year (50% off).  __Please note: CO libraries eligible for free hosting (see above) are still eligible for free hosting, including for the 1,000 books program.__
