The Cedar Rapids Public Library QuickFlicks self-service robotic media station for DVDs, CDs, and video games now checks items out for seven days. After listening to the needs of our customers, it was decided to extend the length of check-out time to seven days.
QuickFlicks allows patrons to check out DVDs, CDs and video games faster, increases the speed at which these items are available, and provides another level of security for costly media materials. The service also reduces the amount of staff time required to handle DVDs and CDs, which can be quite time consuming.
Patrons will now be able to reserve up to 3 QuickFlicks items using either one of the Library’s dedicated computers or from the Library web site (http://quickflicks.crlibrary.org). They will have 3 hours from the time of the reservation to pick up the items. Once a reservation has been made, the patron simply scans their library card (or enters their library card number) into the QuickFlicks machine and their items will dispense. The items will be due in 7 days. To return the item, the patron simply scans their library car or uses the screen prompt to return materials now, and places the product in the return slot.
