We have something new and exciting at the library. It’s our new self-check stations.
With self-check, you can quickly and easily check out books from the library and be on your way.
Fast. You can check out a book and be ready to go in less than 30 seconds.
Easy. Just scan your library card, place your books on the checkout pad, and your done. You can even check out more than one book at a time; put a stack of books on the checkout pad, and they are all checked out in seconds.
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.
How does self-check work? The self-check system uses Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology. A small chip in each book has the book’s identification number. When you place your book on the self-check station, it reads the number of the book from the RFID chip and checks the book out to your library card.
Don’t want to use self-check? No problem. You can still check out your books to the check-out desk, just as you’ve always done. The choice is yours. (But we hope you’ll try self-check. You’ll be surprised how quick and easy it is.)
