Staff Kudos

 Several staff members were mentioned by name for providing such wonderful help to a patron that the person wants to nominate them for Librarians of the Year.  The patron felt that the assistance they gave was above and beyond the call of duty.

 We are always pleased to hear about the fine work done by library staff.  The New City Library staff does their utmost to provide the best possible service and usually do.  We are grateful when patrons take the time and make the effort to let us know about such occasions.

Chair Yoga

We will combine four separate suggestions that all express the same comment and request.  Quoting from one of them, “The Chair Yoga Classes with Rochelle Spooner were excellent.  I hope you can have her return for another series of classes.

Thanks to all of you for your endorsement of the library-sponsored program and your expression of interest in having it continue.  Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Community Relations staff will make arrangements to offer the class as soon as arrangements can be made with Ms. Spooner.

Security Guard

Submission orginally receieve on 10/11/2013:

The library should have an unarmed security guard (20 hours per week) who covers the lobby and outside the front door.  Perhaps about 2 hours before closing time yesterday I noticed a possible harassment of a youth who was leaving the library at about 8:30 p.m.  The part-time security guard, in my opinion, should be hired immediately.  The guard being there would help a situation like that.  Thanks.   

 

Thank you for the suggestion.  This is a relatively rare situation, but we take it seriously.  If there is ever a threat to a patron or a staff member, the library staff always has the option to call the Clarkstown police, who are a few blocks away.  Also the library will review its security procedures to see what steps can be taken to ensure the safety and security of all users and staff.  Because there have been so few instances of harassment or whatever untoward or threatening behavior it does not justify the expense of an unarmed security guard at this time.
