Reserve Policy

A few cases have occurred concerning a patron wanting to check out a book and it is on reserve for another patron. After conversing with the other managers and K.C., we have decided the patron who brought the book to the desk is the recipient. Although, this is somewhat of a judgement call on your part. If you feel the book on reserve might be used for research purposes then you have the right to tell the patron there is a hold on the book. If you ever need help in making the decision do not hesitate to ask your manager. Feel free to leave comments here with any questions or concerns you may have. Thanks!

    Thanks Todd, if a book is on the shelf and a patron finds it, that means the book has yet to be pulled for the reserve shelf. Which is okay because the reserve could be made by another branch and another patron could already have it in hand.
