"Increased circulation at Greenwich Library has meant longer lines at all checkout stations. The Express machines are easy to use and will reduce lines at the service desks by offering a self service," said Elaine Tai-Lauria, Lending Services manager.
Two units are located on the first floor of the Main Library, and one unit in the Children's Room. The Children's Room unit is a new point of service in the Library and will be placed at a convenient height for children and will also be ADA accessible. Shortly, an Express Checkout machine will be available at the Byram Shubert Library and a unit is scheduled for next year at the Cos Cob Library.
Lending staff will provide demonstrations of the new machines during the week from August 24-28 to familiarize patrons with the Express Checkout machines.
