Identifying WPL magazines

Is it possible to have a more prominent WPL stamp on the cover of magazines? The current stamp blends in too successfully with background print to see easily.

You’re right! Those stamps are sometimes hidden by the background artwork and are often tough to see. We were trying to think up another more visible, yet cost-effective method for identifying WPL magazines when a new rule came along from the Regional Library organization which says that all library barcodes now must be located on the front cover of all items in order to facilitate inter-library delivery. It seems that this may serve more than one purpose and we hope that you will find this an effective identifier.

Air Fresheners

The library needs air fresheners placed around strategically. There are stale odors, especially on the 2nd floor.

Unfortunately, because of a rise in the number of people who suffer from chemical sensitivities, air fresheners are often not acceptable in this type of public space. Another unfortunate budget reality is that the custodial staff is doing its best to maintain this big building with only 1 full-time custodian when we used to have 2. However, if you experience a specific incident or area that needs custodial attention, please let a staff member know and we’ll do our best to remedy the situation when it’s possible.

Lights out! Closing time…

Please don’t turn the lights off so early before closing time.

Sorry for the inconvenience. The library often has visitors that never want to leave! While it’s nice to be appreciated, dimming the lights has often helped to move patrons along at closing time. Many of the study carrels do have individual lights available which sometimes get unplugged in favor of patrons using laptops, but please feel free to make use of those. Since the installation of the public address system, perhaps the dimming is no longer as crucial as it once was for alerting patrons to the approach of closing time. The custodial staff is going to wait until a bit closer to closing to dim the lights.
