Self-Check celebrates a birthday

You’re in a hurry, you’re in a line here at the library and the person right in front of you is checking out what seems like the library’s entire collection of Dr Seuss, T.D. Jakes and Stephen King. You feel your blood pressure rise as that little voice inside your head whispers, “You are going to be late!” At the far end of the line, you see the library staff busily scanning out books, but the line seems ominously long. The unconscious tapping of your foot is interrupted by an exasperated mumble up ahead, “Where is my card? It was just here”. Repeated anxious glances at your watch does not help, but what can you do? With no time to wait, you decide to take matters in your hands. You can now walk over to the library’s self check out machine. In mere moments, you scan your card, scan your books, and print a date due receipt. You can’t help but break into a little smile as you take your receipt and make your way to the exit. Maybe you won’t be late after all. We hope you have discovered our self-check machine which is celebrating its 3rd birthday this week. The self-check is great service that we have been excited to offer. It may be quicker, and more private, but it is just an option for checkout. We’ll still be glad to check out your items. So come in and give our self-check a try. (We’ll be there to help if you need it).
