Library Hours

OK, it’s been about a month that our library hours were changed and still, we get befuddled patrons coming up to the door and yanking on it when we’re still closed. I feel badly for them, really. I mean, I’m delighted they come here, but I’m not sure where the disconnect is…

Are they infrequent users and really know that we’re closed on Tuesday and Thursday mornings instead of Wednesday morning? Or, is it just a habit. Or, is it that their expectations are that the library is always open.

In the end, it’s probably the last reason. If we could be open 24/7, there would be people who would come in. 🙂

Now, if we could just get them to stop yanking on the book drop when it’s closed.



  1. JTK Said:

    You close the after-hours book drop? Why?

  2. Sorry I wasn’t clear… the book drop is only open when the library is closed. When the library is open, we lock it and ask patrons to come in… the book drop receptacle is just a bin and is not secured…

    When people force the book drop door, they end up dropping the book/item through the book drop and onto the floor inside the front door. sigh.

    Thanks for the comment.
