Your Circulation Desk

   Start at your circulation desk is a good way to organize and begin to be more efficient.    This is the one place where everyone spends a lot of time, the circulation desk!
   Take 15 minutes the first day you can , and see where you can be better organized and more efficient.

    Do you have pencils/ pens handy both for your use ,  your assistant and even your patrons / students.   Get some sharpened and ready. Make a can that people can grab if they need too.

    Look at your calendar. Do you have one? Is it up to date? Clean it off so you can see and write or pencil important dates/ tasks for you to remember. The calendar is one of the most important things for you to use in your quest in being organized and efficient!

  Other  tools that you need at the circulation desk:    Information on programs ( if at a public library) cards to sign up for a public library card,  phone books,   paper clips, paper, staples,  tape, and glue.

  Most importantly keep your items needed for circulation: date due stamps, stamper, re-inker, slips or  slip printer,    and  slip printer paper.  Also keep a supply of pockets if you use them and  other items related to the check out of books and materials.
