We want our patrons to want to ask us for help.

This means occasionally looking up from your laptop and smiling at people.

Don’t to afraid to ask people if they need help! If they don’t need help, they’ll be impressed that you asked.

And if they DO need help, they’ll be relieved that you mentioned it first.

  • you’ve done your shelf-reading for the week, AND

  • You’ve asked your supervisors if they have other tasks for you
