Q. Why not create a 'nerd' award to honour the person who has spent most time in the Library?

Thanks for filling in one of our comments cards last week.

You are quite right – every entrance to and exit from the Main Library is logged.  This is what allows us to display the occupancy screen at the front entrance with a live feed of how many people are in the building.

I think the user who visits the Library the most times over a year would probably prefer a bit of anonymity, even if there was a prize on offer!  Besides, if we were to do something like this, I think we’d call it something else other than “The Nerd” prize J.  Mind you, I’m a librarian so I think people who spend lots of time in libraries aren’t nerds!

Thanks again for your fun suggestion.

Best wishes
