[May 7, 2015] The Office of Library and Information Services is pleased to announce the award of a contract for statewide delivery of library materials to Optima Shipping Systems of Woburn, MA. OLIS' Library of Rhode Island (LORI) will resume delivery services on or around May 26. Optima has extensive experience delivering library materials; currently they provide delivery services for the Massachusetts Library System, moving approximately 14 million items a year between 550 libraries. The LORI delivery system moved around 2.2 million items between 218 libraries in 2014. OLIS apologies for the inconvenience caused by the temporary interruption of LORI delivery. We are confident that Optima will provide outstanding service to Rhode Island libraries. The new contract continues through June, 2018. Over the next few weeks, OLIS will inform libraries of new delivery schedules and any other important updates.
