March Madness Month AWARD – Thurs, March 4

Ask a Librarian March Madness Month

Where each day brings a surprising fact, a fun activity, or an Ask a Librarian award … and a chance to brag about our incredible services!

And the Ask a Librarian Award goes to…

With more than 100 libraries participating and more than 1000 fabulous librarians trained, Ask a Librarian thrives on providing excellent customer service to patrons all across Florida.  One key to excellent customer service is picking up patrons quickly… a quick response time tells the patron his or her needs are important to us, and that our trained librarians are here to help.  So, now, a little bit of Ask a Librarian trivia….     

Question: 

Which staff has the the quickest response time to a customer?

Answer: 

Larry Cooperman of Everglades University!  His average response time?  With 57 sessions in January, Larry’s average response time was 20 seconds.

Way to go, Larry!  A secret prize will arrive on your doorstep in the next few weeks.
