About the WhoFi program

WhoFi logo

The State Library provides WhoFi wireless usage counter software to all SD public libraries. 

This edition of WhoFi is designed especially for libraries to provide them with the wireless session count required on the Public Libraries Survey and it anonymizes network data to protect patron privacy. WhoFi's easy-to-read reports and charts assist directors in communicating the library’s community impact and in making data-driven decisions regarding library services.

We encourage all South Dakota public libraries and their branches to take advantage of this free opportunity. Contact the State Library Data Coordinator to enroll your library.

The State Library's WhoFi license includes the Program Planner tool. 

Program Planner is a reporting tool to help libraries understand their programming and better serve the community. An easy-to-use system to schedule programs and view insights - all in one place. This tool makes it easy to schedule, manage, and count attendance at all programs and events..

Program Planner is aligned with the program reporting categories for the Public Libraries Survey (your annual report) and the Summer Reading Survey. Public libraries can use this tool regardless of whether they use the WhoFi wireless counter software.

 

How can I get started using Program Planner?
  • If your library is already using the WhoFi wireless counter, log into your account app.whoisonmywifi.net/login and select the Programming prompt on the menu at the left of the screen.
  • If your library is not enrolled in the WhoFi wireless counter program, you may contact WhoFi directly and ask to be added to the South Dakota State Library's account:  support@whofi.com - 405-415-0434

Follow-up questions can be directed to WhoFi support

SDSL staff can answer general questions regarding program reporting. Contact Shawn.Behrends@state.sd.us, SDSL Data Coordinator, or Laura.Kelly@state.sd.us, Children’s and Youth Services Coordinator.
