Dr. Albrecht Blog Post: "Are You Using a Closing Time Procedures Checklist? (But I Thought You Locked the Restroom?)"

We've just posted a new Dr. Albrecht blog post in our "Library Service, Safety, & Security" section of Library 2.0: "Are You Using a Closing Time Procedures Checklist? (But I Thought You Locked the Restroom?)" 
Does your library use a printed checklist for closing time procedures? You might think your facility is too small, or too well-organized to need such a device. “We don’t need a written checklist. We all know what to do. The staff always gets it right. We’ve never left a child locked in the building! Well, there was that one time when we found the kid who managed to get into our break room and fell asleep on our couch after eating all our snacks.”
