Fully automate your church library.

More and more churches are choosing automation software to streamline the day-to-day tasks in their church libraries. Automating is simply using specialized software to help with cataloging, circulation, administration and card catalog. Because most public and school libraries are automated, your volunteers and members will likely be familiar with using an automated catalog.

With Surpass CL automation software, you’ll revitalize your church library ministry. You’ll be able to get materials to church members more efficiently and quickly. Automate and watch your library ministry grow!

  • Easy Cataloging
  • Volunteer-Friendly System
  • Self-Service Software

Your all-inclusive Library Solution

Surpass library automation software is now streamlined especially for churches, synagogues, and other places of worship. For both new and well-established libraries, Surpass CL provides professional quality in a volunteer-friendly package. ACS library automation with Surpass CL is an all-inclusive solution including:

  • Cataloging, including time-saving Internet downloading
  • Circulation
  • Patron management
  • Inventory
  • Barcoding
  • Reports
  • Patron self-check
  • Searchable patron catalog

Simply scan the book’s ISBN barcode (or enter by hand) and let Surpass CL find the cataloging information on the Internet, when available. There is little or no typing, and volunteers easily learn how to help.


With an automated library, you won’t need cumbersome signout notebooks. Fully-automate circulation or, when the library is unattended, have patrons leave barcoded pocket cards for later scanning. Surpass CL includes a feature for patrons to check-out on their own using a mouse or touch-screen monitor.

Patron catalog

Eliminate your card catalog (or book list notebook) when you automate your catalog with Surpass CL Safari. Your members can browse for materials by title, author, subject, keyword, and category.

Organize and find materials quickly

Customize searching to quickly take your patrons to special topics in your library, such as devotions, church history, or evangelism.
