Libraries Closed For Staff Training Day December 12

Posted on: 11/18/2003

All Seminole County Public Libraries will be closed on Friday, December 12 for a staff training day. Library staff from all branches will be attending an 8 hour training session. At all other times, library employees work shifts in order to keep the five branches open 7 days a week, 68 hours a week. Last year for the first time Seminole County Libraries were closed one day for staff training which proved to be so successful that another day is planned this year. Other Central Florida library systems also follow this practice. Management selected December 12 for closing because the 2002 statistics showed lowest checkout activity and attendance by the public on that day.
The online library catalog will also be out of service from 12:30 to 1:30 PM on December 12 due to the installation of a software upgrade.
Staff will be instructed on the upgrading of the library’s computer system.
Presentations and discussions will include the topics of customer service, team building, storytelling, working with teens, computer upgrade and working with the public.
All library branches will resume regular operating hours on Saturday, December 13 at 9:00 A.M.
