Visuals helps A LOT, so if you can, create quick simple screencasts and create a Youtube channel so you have the information there whenever they need it to refer back to.  The great thing about this is that you only have to do it one time!



And for some reason, there must be some magic juju when people step behind a circ desk.  All of a sudden, they are the SUPREME BEING of the library....well, not really.  Compare the library to a department store or any store they go to.  Ask them what makes them come back to their favorite one and what makes them never want to come to another again.  After this conversation with real life experiences, compare this to how a library operates, and that it IS customer driven and customer based.  Hopefully they'll see that....



Hope this helps,

I'd start with the basics of check in, check out, shelving (basically what you'd want a sub to know) and be clear about the atmosphere that you expect for the library program. Do the best you can and then let it go, you already run 2 libraries and the school has chosen to cut support. It's not going to be a great situation, so you can only give them best practices.



I've been reading the book Essentialism and it talks a lot about not doing essential things so that you can focus on the things that are essential to you. I'm not sure how much ability you have to be honest with the principal, but if you can you need to make it clear to him/her that this is not an acceptable situation and that there will be problems. When there are personality conflicts amongst paras, that is something that the principal will need to deal with, as you are not really their supervisor.





Tough love!
