I recently stocked all the service desk areas in Annex 1 with new office pencils and attached written markers indicating they should be returned to Annex 1 desk areas.
Today, they’re all gone.
If patrons ask to ‘borrow’ a pencil, a high percentage of them do not return. Remember – we have boxes of ‘golf pencils’. They’re relatively cheap and do not require an honor system for their return.
Please provide them to the public, versus our desk pencils.
