People before Policy

May 2, 2007 at 1:50 am 2 comments

I asked one of the department managers today about the policy requiring a library card in order to use the computers.  The response was that libraries live and die by their numbers and if people do not get library cards, then our statistics will not reflect the accurate number of people using the library, which in turn impacts funding.  I understand the reasoning and I’m a true believer that everyone should have a library card, but I still don’t think that people should be turned away when they need help that we can easily provide.  People before policy, in my opinion.
