Self-check @ the Library

Goshen County Library has a new self-check out station. With self-check, patrons can quickly and easily check out books from the library and be on their way.

According to Library Director Cristine Braddy, “Self-check is fast - you can check out a book and be ready to go in less than one minute. It’s easy - just scan your library card, scan your book’s bar code, and you’re done. And, it’s convenient - no more waiting in line to check-out books. Plus you can renew books from the self-check machine (even if you don’t have the book with you) and check the status of your account.”

The Library will still have a staffed check out station, as it always has. “But, we really want to encourage patrons to try the self-check out,” says Braddy. “I think they’ll be surprised at how quick and easy it is.”
