Congratulations to Jayla and the Youth Team on the hosting of our annual SRP kick-off party, we had a great turn-out.  Please assist Jayla as necessary with SRP, we have been seeing some awesome numbers for our events.
Let’s continue to use Qless as much as necessary, if we find that we have errors please notify us so that we can work with Patrick and the Vendor to try and fix.  I will keep you updated on when we go Live.  As we get closer to the start date, we will develop the language that will be used to notify customer of the new system.  I would also suggest that when customer call us now, we can let them know that we are piloting a queue system and that when they come to the library we will take their cellphone number and summon them via text when we are ready to process their applications.
