What Clients Are Saying:
“I will tell you that my newest library staff member specifically commented on how much she enjoyed the examples given. She has a strong customer service focused work history, but this is her first experience working in a library. She felt like she came away with some concrete 'scripts' almost of how she can respond when in a new situation.”
—KATHLEEN CONNELLY-BROWN - Branch Manager, Stilwell Public Library

Libraries are changing. Library customers have greater needs and expectations, while reductions in funding continue to be an issue. Educating people about the benefits of libraries and advocating for their continued support is essential. A critical component of advocacy is very well articulated by Peter Bromberg the Executive Director of the Salt Lake City Public Library: “While customer service may not equal advocacy, I’d argue that it is certainly part of the foundation upon which advocacy is built. Good luck doing advocacy if you give crap service to your customers!” With this in mind, improving customer service has clearly become more important than ever.

This program is ideally suited for librarians and library staff.

 
Learning outcomes

  • Determine what today’s library patrons want and need
  • Recognize the importance of the first impressions made by your front desk and staff
  • Understand how to build trust and rapport

  • Apply techniques for exceptional phone service
  • Explain innovative ways to deal with teenagers
  • Create lasting relationships
  • Demonstrate how to deal with difficult customers
  • Discuss how to make your library easier to use
  • Develop ways to go above and beyond

 We will customize this program or coaching session to address your wants and needs.
