We were blessed to have Shawn Behrends visit with us today from the State Library. She was a great resource of stats and information about the library and listened to all of my concerns and issues. When I speak with her, I am always impressed with her knowledge base, her professionalism and her ability to explain the complex in simple terms for lay people. Thanks, Shawn, it was fun!
Another successful Free Root Beer Float day at the library on Thursday. We love our ice cream and treats at the library. The TAB members volunteered to serve all afternoon, so all I had to do was provide the supplies and schmooze with the patrons. It was great! Thanks, TAB!! You are awesome.
What a terrific surprise I had when I returned from vacation yesterday to find a wonderful gift from the SD State Library and the IMLS. They had retired their "Technology Petting Zoo" devices and decided to request proposals from SD libraries if they were interested in obtaining one of the retired items. And we received an iPad 4! What a wonderful addition to our library. Hunter had fun setting it up and investigating new ways we can use it at our library. All we can say is THANKS!
