No Favorites, But...

Nonagenarian patrons make use of all the conveniences at the public library, including the self-checkout machine.

Some people are so special!  

We appreciate all the business –our gate count is consistently . Though each day brings surprising encounters, some interactions are remarkable and deserve mention.

Last week, a patron was using the self-checkout machine and doing just fine, but turned to the checkout desk when an item was not scanning properly.

A staff person checked the patron’s card to make sure it was up-to-date and saw that the patron was 98 years old. The two had a nice conversation about using the library.

Our staff member was so happy to serve the nonagenarians in our midst. (When they let us help!!)
