where educators come to learn from one another
I work in an Information Center for an intermediate school district. I have a Nook Touch and a 3rd gen Kindle that I check out to employees so that they can see how e-readers work and compare the models. I have some books on each device. An employee suggested that to make the e-readers more desirable to check out that I offer a service of adding public library books per an employee's request.
First, our departmental secretary would have to check the books out because the accounts are in her name. But I'm wondering what the implications are for such a service. If a library book is checked out for someone and the patron does not have an actual library card for that library or live in that library area is it appropriate to do so? It does not seem so to me but I was wondering if someone could give me the definitive answer. Thank you!
