About the Podcast

Hey there - I haven't updated this blog with writing in a little bit. Did you know that working with the public during a global health crisis is really exhausting? I am honestly so inspired by the people at the front desk every day. They're always impressive, but right now moreso. Anyway - why am I writing? Because we have a podcast! I am the main creator and producer, and Alyce in the children's department submits some great content for it as well. It's probably one of the most fun things I'm doing for work right now. Please give it…

Books Leaving the Library

I just got back from vacation! Hello! I didn't go anywhere, but taking some time at home is always really nice for me. Before I left, and now that I'm back, I'm spending a lot of time working with the nonfiction collection. It is kind of out of control in here, because my job is to take care of patrons. Lately, though, there aren't as many of you coming in for my help, so I have time. This is what I've been working on: Oh, very exciting, very exciting, a picture of bookshelves.
