Services framed by setting

Had my regular eye doctor appointment on Saturday – and ended up talking about . . . . what else? Libraries. The technician who did the screening saw my occupation on the health history form.

Library Y is even in the town where she lives.

Now the interesting thing is that both X and Y get the same books, ordered by the same selector. Only difference is that X is a beautiful new library, with lots of artwork and a skylight. Y is a . . . . well, let’s just say it’s an older facility in line for a facelift or replacement. But when my eye technician goes in, she sees the collection illuminated by the environment. Hmmmm, makes you think.
