About the Project

The Simple Library Management System can help manage the school library. This system is easy to use, which can help librarians to manage the book location, the records of the borrowed, and returned books. The library visitor may also use the system when to locate the location of his/her desired book to read. In this system, the librarian can easily track the overdue borrowed code and also determine if the returned book was exactly the book that has been borrowed. This project has only a small scope that could help to start with developing systems with such related functions and features.
