Pages, Shelvers: Whatever You Call Them, They’re Essential!
But, you may feel like you’re supervising a revolving door if you have the responsibility to hire, train, and evaluate them! Pat Tunstall of Indian Trails Public Library searched in vain for a book on how to do it when she became manager of a 50 person building-wide Page Pool. So she made a lot up as she went along and networked with as many other Page Supervisors as she could find.
