Lots of returns coming in, but please look at each book and make sure it is not damaged or wet. If we catch it, we can often repair it.

You may get people at the desk asking where the tax forms are. If there are not any at the info desk, then we don’t have any. There is a book at said info desk (that does not leave the library – the book…and the desk, I suppose) that gives instructions on how to submit your taxes online.
The Courtesy Hold Shelf should be used for NON-LIBRARY materials only. If it is a library item, it should be put on hold via Millennium. Thanks!
Starting now, all camcorders, digital cameras, and tripods have been changed to a 3-day loan for all borrowers (from a 1-day loan, previously). That is all.
This is an important reminder to be sure that you look at the check-in computer screen to confirm that each item you check in, is marked as such in Millennium. Don’t be fooled; the audio beep upon check-in does not mean that a book or DVD has been successfully checked in. You have to see it on the screen to be certain.
The reason we are bringing this up is because we have had a recent rash of calls and emails from patrons who have stated their book or DVD is overdue, when in fact, the item was returned days ago. This wastes a lot of time for all involved. Our simple resolution: please make it a habit to check the screen for all check-in items.
Regarding Mac retina chargers, I have placed a sign for each basket of retina display chargers in the drawers, so if you place a retina chargers in its specified container, they will be properly separated. Please wind up stray cords whenever you see them so we can stay ahead of the “spaghetti syndrome.”
Thank you all. Everyone is doing a great job, but I wanted to mention this adjustment. We appreciate your attention to these issues.
In an effort to cut down on the loss of projectionist keys, please check out the master projectionist key on personal accounts, NOT on the generic Media Screener card. Messages will pop up all over in Millennium, so hopefully we will remember.
Please take eight minutes and twenty five seconds of your time to watch this video about book preservation. If you don’t chuckle at least once, you may be some kind of soulless zombie mummy. (Which may be triply redundant.)
