The Use of Self-Checkout Machines Should be Optional, Not Mandatory, for Columbus Metropolitan Library Patrons sign now

We the undersigned believe that the Columbus, Ohio Metropolitan Library system is one of the finest in the nation. As a reflection of the CMLs stature, we believe CML patrons should have a choice whether or not to use self-checkout machines when borrowing materials from the library. Moreover, we believe CML employees should be allowed the opportunity of checking out materials for patrons who choose not to use the self-checkout machines.

We the undersigned believe that future fundamental changes in the way the CML serves the community should be publicized to CML patrons and Library members before, and instead of, being implemented with little fanfare and little input from the community at large. We also believe that making the use of self-checkout machines optional, instead of mandatory, will 1) foster good will towards the Columbus community, 2) give patrons - who fund the CML through their tax dollars more choices, and 3) have the important benefit of fostering more, friendly, interaction between library employees and patrons.

    Even patrons who are technologically saavy sometimes want (and need!) to interact with another human being. It greatly disturbs me to see the library being run like just another impersonal business. I can get that anytime just from visiting my local bank

    the current set up makes approaching a CML employee, for whatever reason, very uninviting.

    It's a good thing that police officer in Reynoldsburg went to her local branch instead of the Main Library. I can't imagine a self-checkout machine hanging on to her purse (which had her GUN in it) until she realized and came back to get it.
