Patron Appreciation Post

You know you're a patron at the Powassan Library when...
1) You don't have to tell the staff your name when you check out your books. We already know who you are.
2) You find yourself among a group of other patrons outside the front door at 10:15 am. We don't open until 10:30.
3) You race to the computer lab because you want to use Ahab. That computer is already in use.
4) You receive a call from the library saying you have a book in, and you can't remember reserving it. You take it anyway, and you love it. The truth is that you didn't reserve it. we knew you would love it, and took the liberty of reserving it for you. You're welcome.
5) You hear of a book being made into a movie and vow to read the book before seeing the movie. It turns out the rest of the community had the same idea, and you find yourself at the bottom of the list. (See #6)
6) You want to read a book and the library a) doesn't have the book or b) has it but the reserve list is quite long. Instead of making you wait for the title, a staff member lends you his or her own personal copy.
7) You've found yourself driving to the library on a Wednesday only to get there and remember we're closed on Wednesdays. Don't be embarrassed. I work here, and I've done it too.
8) You own and/or have bought someone else a pair of slippers from the library and you absolutely love them.
9) You've shown up at the library with a stash of toonies to pay off some of your fines. You're grateful that the maximum fine is $2.00.
10) You bring your children to the library and they protest that they really don't want to leave because they're having so much fun playing with the touch-screen computer and animals.
11) You receive a call that a book you were waiting for has finally arrived!... ten minutes after you've left the library.

All jokes aside, thank you for being a valued patron of the Powassan Library! We enjoy seeing each and every one of you during your library visits.
