Getting used to the idea

At the library where I work, we are doing away with grace periods and allowing two renewals as long as there are no holds on an item. We are also instituting self pick up of holds in about two weeks. All these changes may be difficult for some to get used to, but I'm excited. Change is good, keeps us fresh. I tend to frame it for patrons as, "There is a benefit to this, and while it may seem weird, you have time to get used to the idea."

It's one of those techniques I sometimes use to psych myself up for something. Well, it seems good in a logical way, I think. Or, hey, it makes sense from this angle. Or even, wow, the possibilities in that scenario are greater than in the current one. Only time and faith will tell.
