The circulation desk and reference desk are the central command center in any library. They are the first thing seen and the one spot that every patron visits. Libraries that put the extra thought in planning the circulation desk find the function of the desk to be far more valuable than those who just accept the desk that is put in front of them.
J.P. Jay does dozens of desks every year; therefore, we ensure the library staff plays an intricate role in designing the components of the desk as they are the people using it every day. Not getting what you need to make your desk function could mean working with an inefficient desk for 30 years.
