As I was posting about breaking records, the Circulation staff was busy (very, very busy) breaking a new one. They checked in, checked out, or renewed 6,536 items on Monday, a new single day record.
To put that into perspective, it means they moved more than 9 books a minute for 12 hours!
That's an awful lot of books to check in and out, all while waiting on patrons, pulling books for holds, calling patrons with holds, loading carts of books, unloading carts of books, and the many other tasks that make up their day. That's one heck of a workout for a workday.
Let's hear it for the Circulation staff!!!! WTG, ladies!!!!!
