“Water pressure in the bubbler next to library entrance is so low it’s hard to get a drink. The 3rd floor bubblers are also low in pressure. Thank you.”
We noticed that same problem on the Library’s 2nd floor but hadn’t done anything about it, so we’re glad you said something. We recently spoke to the HSLC facilities folks, and they said that sometimes the fountains’ filters need cleaning and once that is done the flow improves. We have ordered cleaning for both the 2nd and 3rd floor drinking fountains, and hope to have the bubblers bubbling (full force) soon.
And in case you wondered, the term “bubbler” originated in eastern Wisconsin! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubbler.

“Please label how much copies are so we don’t have to guess!”
Thanks for the comment. The per-page cost of printing and copying is posted in each copy center. To help those folks using our non-copy center printers, we are in the process of adding signs with per-page costs next to those machines as well.

“Please sanitize laptops. I’ve borrowed a few that were downright disgusting.”
We do try to wipe the laptops down when they’re returned, but they tend to go out as fast as they are returned, so we don’t always get a chance to thoroughly clean each unit. If you notice one that is dirty, please feel free to let us know and we will clean it up for you.

“Dust the computers – they are gross!”
We do try to clean the computers and monitors on a regular basis. But dust never sleeps. We’ll try harder, and if you spot a really noxious example of dustiness, please let us know. Thanks for the help!
