« Back to comments"What should we call people who go to the library and/or take advantage of library services? "
 From Kate  1 minute ago.  
My public library system uses 'patron" so I tend to use that professionally. I personally like the argument for "member" - one signs up for a library card and becomes a member of the library - a part of that community. However I do not see "member" getting a lot of use or support in the United States at the moment. I sometimes think that those of us who resonate with member should just move over to using the term and it would become lingua franca. Maybe.
