Built in 1910 with funds donated by Andrew Carnegie, the building of the West Seattle branch public library was renovated in 2003-2004.
I had just checked out a stack of mysteries for Vicki and I to read while she was convalescing. That was my first geek-librarian experience. They had installed new self-check-out stations that automatically identified the books and would check them out to my library card (so long as I knew my PIN number, which I did). The librarian was telling me what to do rather than give me time to read the displays, understand what the choices were, and figure it out myself. Now I will have to do it over again. This time, if someone offers to be helpful I will explain how that doesn't work for me.
I suppose it's geek karma. I am certain I have leaned over and worked someone else's keyboard and mouse so I could show them how to do something.
