Reciprocal Borrowing 2012 - Board Presentation

At the Board of Trustees meeting on February 21, 2013, Circulation Services Department Head Nancy Szczepanski provided an overview of reciprocal borrowing. Nancy reviewed 2012 checkouts from our library by residents of other communities, and vice-versa, particularly since the board approval of changes to our Circulation Policy last year. The updated policy affirmed our commitment to sharing with and supporting our neighbors while preserving primary access to Canton taxpayers.

Nancy's presentation, attached here as a .pdf, gave the Board good background on checkouts of our materials by patrons of other libraries, and I hope that you find it useful and interesting, also.

Best,

Thorndyke Thoughts

Hey Kids!
If you look at this picture of me, you can see I'm not at CPL! The CTTS Staff and I went on a little field trip yesterday. We visited the Novi Public Library! The Novi Library built a brand new building last year and we went to look around. It's a pretty cool place. They even have a race car in the Children's Department called the Novi Special! And there are beautiful tiles to look at too. One even has a dinosaur bone in it. And just like at CPL, there a lots of fun computers to play on and interesting books to check out.
Did you know that Canton Public Library has "reciprocal borrowing privileges" with Novi Library? Those big words mean that CPL is friends with Novi Library, and that your Canton Public Library card works all the way over there! I think that's the coolest thing I learned on my tour. You should go "check out" the Novi Library (just a little library humor there!) but don't forget to come visit me too!
Bear Hugs!
Thorndyke
