Library Basics Part 1: Front Desk Basics

Agenda:

Working at a library is different from other customer service jobs, even if many of the same skills apply. Participants will learn:

  • The role of the library in the community and some common or unusual services libraries provide
  • How to address problems like patrons with overdue fines or being unable to provide the book a patron wants
  • Practical ethics including patron privacy, equitable access to library resources, and censorship questions

Audience:

Public library paraprofessional staff with little or no library experience; staff wanting a refresher of basic library skills

Location:

Marian Wright Edelman Public Library of Marlboro County, 203 Fayetteville Ave, Bennettsville, SC 29512

Accessibility:

FM Auditory Assistance, large print materials, and other accessibility accommodations are available by request. If you need a reasonable accommodation in order to participate, please contact the program organizer at least two weeks in advance.
