Greenwich Library Offers New Express Checkout Service for Easy Borrowing

| 1 Comment
Thumbnail image for sentry1.jpgGreenwich Library has installed three new Sentry QuickCheck™ machines to allow patrons to check-out all formats of library materials. The Express Checkout station is intuitive and easy-to-use. The system has a touch screen monitor and offers step-by-step instructions to guide patrons through the process. One advantage of the new equipment is the ability to check-out all library materials including books, CDs, DVDs, video and audiobooks. Patrons may also select from a menu of multiple languages. They may scan either their library card or the key tag.

"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.

Much of the waste related to printing has to do with children printing at random. Often an adult will come to the library with a child, child given own set at own computer. Prints at random ande printed pages are never "calimed.

Many non-Greenwich residents use the library, perhaps as New Rocheele does library and printing should be for Town residents only.
