Purchase suggestion

Create a new tag system for each item borrowed

Create a new tag system for each item borrowed so readers know each item's due date. The stickums were fine. Old fashioned cardstock in a jacket pocket with date stamp is fine. The current loose piece of paper we get to go in one item does not serve the purpose unless only one item is borrowed.

Our answer:

Unfortunately, the machines that created the due date stickers have broken and are no longer made. In the interest of accuracy, we need to use a receipt system integrated with our circulation system. The receipts that patrons receive at checkout have the due dates for all of the items checked out on that day. You can also check the due dates for your items by calling the Circulation Desk at 234-0333 or by viewing your patron record online.
