New Self Checkout Machines

If you haven’t been to the Northwest library in the past week, we’ve made another exciting change to our system: new self checkout machines! The process on the new machines is a little different, but don’t fear, one of our friendly staff members will gladly guide you through the process. The best new features are the multidirectional scanners and receipt printing options. Come by the library, pick out a book and try it for yourself.
