Discreet, Being

A polite circulation librarian should always repeat the name of the patron's book aloud at the conclusion of a library check-out transaction.  By loudly saying, "I hope you enjoy An Idiot's Guide to Do-It-Yourself Colonoscopies, Ms. Johnson," you will not only confirm your patron's book selection, but also send the patron away with a personal touch they won't likely forget.

Circulation librarian? Is that a thing?

Yet another reason to love those self checkout stations.

I'm not going to find love unless I take off my glasses? Well, yeah! When I'm blind everyone is blurry and thus good looking, even if they aren't.

Quite correct I don't believe there is such a thing as a circulation librarian. However, I also believe that you should recite the customers phone number and address aloud as well to confirm current information.

Ah yes, how well this post brings back the premature revelation to my coworkers that I was pregnant.

Why not take borrow this technique from the grocery store and bookstore? They do it all the time. "What do you use this for?"

I think Librista beat me to the punch, but I've been seeing a lot of internet chatter about Miss Manners. Here's a post that I put up with a library student's perspective of the advice Miss Manners put out:Library Superhero.
