Closing Time: Efficient and Effective End of Day Processes Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, October 14, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific
It’s hard for some people to say “good-bye.” But at the end of our workday, we must efficiently, effectively, and with as much patience and grace as possible, move library users out of the building and secure it.
This 90-minute, highly-interactive workshop explores basic practices followed in closing and securing libraries at the end of the day; techniques used to overcome the challenge of saying “good-bye” to those who just aren’t quite ready to go; and innovative ways to turn closing time into an event rather than a chore. Session participants will be encouraged to discuss ways they have overcome closing-time challenges and methods they have used to encourage patrons to leave on a high note rather than in frustration.
After participating in this workshop, you will:
- Know how colleagues approach the challenge of closing and securing library buildings at the end of a day
- Have at least three ideas for how to overcome closing-time challenges
- Have at least three examples you can adapt for bringing a sense of playfulness to closing-time routines
