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 books, “Friends” DVD’s and Stephen King paperbacks. You feel your blood pressure rise as that little voice inside your head whispers, “You’re going to be late!” At the far end of the line, you see the library staff quickly 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!” With no time to wait, you decide to take matters into your own hands. You walk over to one of the library’s self-check-out machines. 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 machines, which were first introduced here five years ago. The self-check is a great service that we are excited to offer. We’ll still be glad to check out your items, but come in and give our self-check a try. (We’ll be there to help if you need it).
