The Julian News 3 "Self Check" Is Being Implemented At The .Julian Branch Library Colleen Baker Julian Branch Librarian Accepted Here -- l rlday 8 am - 6 pm Saturday8 mn-6pm • Sunday 9ran-Spin • • Librarian Patty Asmussen help a couple of the younger library patrons learn how to check out books all by themselves For the past year, the San Diego County Library has been implementing self-check machines at its 33 branches. On Wednesday, July 21 the Julian Branch Library became the 28th branch to receive self check machines. Customers will now be able to check out their items themselves and be on their way. Two of the computers at the circulation desk will become self-check machines and the third computer will be used for customers that have problems, fines to pay, or require other library assistance. As the circulation of library materials continues to increase, but budget constraints do not allow for additional staffing at any libraries, the library came up with a way to work smarter. Allowing customers to check out their own materials frees up staff to perform other duties. The new system requires the customer to have their library with them when they use the library. After you have selected your books or other library materials, you will go to the self check machine, set down your entire stack of books and the reader will read the tags on all of the books, without having to individually scan the item. The items will appear on the screen and if the number of items in your stack of materials agrees with what is on the screen, you press "Done" and your due date receipt is printed. It is simple and takes about one- quarter of the time than if the staff individually check out your items. Don't worry! Staff will be available to assist you as you learn to use the machines and as always, we will assist you in finding library materials. We value the people that use the library and always want to make sure you have a pleasant experience. Only 20K To Go by Chuck Kimball The Board of Directors of the Julian Medical Foundation are excited and pleased to announce that we are only $20,000 away from closing escrow on the new clinic property. Thanks to all of our donors we are very close to owning the property. We have started architectural drawings, have completed all surveying of the site, and are nearly done with the floor plan details. Our original dream has come to pass: The Julian Medical Foundation will own the medical clinic property and, as landlords, will lease to a qualified provider of medical services via a lease that ensures continuing medical services to Julian. We plan to continue and expand the agreements currently in place All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial No good thing is pleasant to possess without friends to share it. -- Seneca the Younger with the Borrego Community Health Foundation, and with the new facility will be able to take advantage of the many other services they offer. For example, a diabetes management program, now active in two of their clinics, that provides medical, dietary, and peer group counseling will be instit0ted in Julian. Having such a service will save our patients the long trip to a specialist in the city. We have provided for programs like this by including a small classroom on the second level of the new clinic. The new contract agreements with the Borrego Foundation are in place and will be recorded this week. We anticipate submitting plans to the county later this summer and will be ready to start construction and remodel when they are approved. We are all anxious to have the new clinic in operation and are still planning late 2011 for the opening.. It is exciting to think that the last five years have been worth the effort. Again, the Boards, here and in BorregoI the staff, and the many volunteers give a big "thank you" to you all,. Remember, we need only $20,000 to close the deal. The Julian Medical Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation, and all donations are fully tax-deductible. Please mail donations to PO Box 2512, Julian, CA 92036, or, simply drop them by the current clinic at 4th and Washington.
