Many of the computer consoles let you use headphones in library's. But not all of them. Folks are encouraged to bring in their own. But I have just had III students here in this branch they find it gross that there are no cleaners or disposable earpieces IV the library branch headphones themselves. So I am assuming they of course mean the felt covers which sit over top of the plastic earpieces themselves.
This idea has a lot of merit IV students & library patrons in general as there can be germ II germ transfer from ear to ear of wax & other foreign substances from user II user. Especially if they do not wash &/or sanitize their hands with branch sanitizer & also if they do not wipe the perspiration off of the earpieces of the headphones after they turn them back inII the library checkout counter upon their exit.
Lets Get Disposable Earpieces In Sealed Plastic Bags In All Branches,
