The library has a new podcast! Novel-Tea from the North Scituate Library is our place to talk about books, new and old, and share the hottest library gossip. Every month, Katherine will tell you about a great or terrible new book, review a brand new cook book, and spill some tea. (Or at least, sip some tea. It’s been pretty quiet lately.) Miss Alyce will also drop in for a Youth Services Segment. The show releases on the third Saturday of every month, and is available wherever you get your podcasts. Trailer Novel-Tea is produced by the North Scituate Library

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. What you don’t see is just how

An interesting week! We are open again!! Things are different. We don’t have chairs for patrons, and we have nice new plexiglass screens at the desks, but it is nice to have people walking around again. (It would be really awesome if you would ALL wear your masks, though. And over your nose, not just your mouth.) How did the storm treat you all? I hope if your power isn’t back, it’s restored soon 😊 Something that I have started this week is tracking my mood, symptoms, and meds in an app called Bearable. I know I am way behind

Today I’ve been working on my piece of the annual report we make to OLIS. I kind of feel like I’m drowning in numbers. I need to report the number of reference questions that come to me at the desk, over the phone, and by email, text, and live chat. the number of programs I run for the year the number of people who attend those programs data about video views data on how much people are using this website The past few months have been so complicated, and so many things have changed, it wasn’t exactly a simple prospect.
