Expectations for Member Libraries
(Or how you can help your colleagues and SCLS!)
* Meet Deadlines. Please meet the deadlines for graphics orders, requests for publicity and, most especially, deadlines for the performers' contracts. Meeting individual deadlines assists all member libraries' requests.
* Proof your publicity and orders and contact us right away if there are errors.
* Please contact SCLS if there is a problem. During the crazy, chaotic, creative months before SLP the SCLS staff are extremely busy and we just might make a mistake. Please contact Shawn Brommer as soon as you notice the problem and we'll do our best to happily remedy the error. Please contact us as soon as possible with any problems.
* Complete evaluation forms. The evaluation forms provide crucial statistical information that justifies the services that SCLS provides to member libraries. Your input on the evaluation forms directly impacts the services your library receives.
* Contact Shawn Brommer with any success stories, thoughts, concerns, questions, comments or problems at any time during the summer. Please remember that we are here to help you. Do not hesitate to contact SCLS staff at any time. Have a great summer; working together, we can make some new, happy library memories!
