Being everything for everybody is what our patrons expect of our circulation staff. Diverse needs, high expectations, and increased library services have pushed even the most patient staff members to the edge.
Having an understanding of your community’s pressures can help ease tense situations and having the right tools and the correct attitude in place enables library staff to withstand even the most challenging situations.
Easier said than done right?
This customer service webinar will address some shared concerns that all libraries have to these changing times and offer new strategies for handling situations.
- Identify patron needs and understand behavior motivators
- Re-energize and empower circulation staff
- Build a service-oriented library environment
