Most of the essays contained in Customer Service in Libraries: Best Practices are sadly underwhelming, nonspecific, or (worse) trying to sell you on a product or service rather than an idea.

At least one of them - Kiera Parrott's piece on the reorganization of a picture book collection at a public library - seems extremely out of place as written and more pertinent to collection management /5. In this piece, we’ll give you a Closer to the customer in the library service book putting that library together with an introduction to five excellent customer support books that should be taking pride of place on its shelves.

Our Favorite Customer Service Books 1. How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie. – The purpose of this paper is to explore the concept of customer service and outline the practices and conditions required to provide excellent customer service in libraries., – The concept of service being at the core of the library profession and the role of libraries to lifelong learning are reiterated to emphasize the importance of quality customer service in by: Welcome to Getting Started with Library Customer Service.

Most Customer Service Books. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t books that can help you get better at perfecting customer support. In fact, there are books that, on the outside, appear to have nothing to do with customer satisfaction, but that can completely change the way you approach working with your customers.

At least they have for me and many of my friends and coworkers. The Best Service Is No Service. Bill Price, Amazon’s former Global VP of Customer Service, pairs up with consultant David Jaffe to offer a framework for reducing “bad contact” with customers — those conversations that aren’t valuable for either party involved.

Libraries in the closet 13 New library, new opportunities   The American Library Association (ALA) is often asked for the names, addresses, and phone numbers of companies that sell products and services to libraries.

The ALA does not endorse products or companies. Neither can the ALA refer anyone to a specific company, as this would necessarily preclude naming other companies whose products are as good. This book deserves four stars for gathering all this information together, and for presenting it in a way that would provide a good foundation in customer service for beginners.

I wouldn't strongly recommend this book to anyone with extensive customer service experience of their own, or for librarians looking for advanced professional s: 3.

Users want the libraries to be a more integral part of their community and closer to them. One way to do this is with the help of the bookmobile.

We reached out to some of our friends in public libraries across the country for their ideas on how to meet the needs of every one of your library patrons.
