Dewey Freedom going on hiatus

| 2 Comments
Dewey Freedom will be going on hiatus starting November 30. In Dewey's place will be what we are calling Holiday Cheer. It will function very much like Dewey Freedom, a shelving check will be done and if all materials are in place we will move up a number. Instead of a prize after every ten days for you all, we will be donating a toy to Toys for Tots for each day without a shelving incident. Holiday Cheer will run from Nov. 30 - Dec. 21st. You can track our progress on the blog under the tab Holiday Cheer. Feel free to bring in toys to donate in addition to those earned.Cheer.gif

MLAC Tour

| 5 Comments
Have you ever wanted to see an underground limestone cavern filled with over one million books?

Now's your chance!

Friday October 2, 2009
10 am

Meet Becky and Katie in the Annex Office slightly before 10am, and they will walk the group over to meet Tim and take the tour.

The tour is not mandatory, but it is highly encouraged. Tim, the MLAC guy, will give you great information about the impressive structure.

Even if you're not going on the tour, we would like everyone to learn what MLAC is in order to better serve people who come to our desks. The library system is very large, and we often get confused patrons who don't know what MLAC is.

Please post a comment letting us know that you've enthusiastically learned all you can about MLAC.

Thanks!

Badge Amnesty Day

Monday, August 17th, CRSS is having an Amnesty Day for anyone who has taken home a library badge, and forgotten to bring it back.  If you have one laying around on dresser, or on your refrigerator, and meant to bring it back...now is the time.  You can attach it anywhere on the area we keep the badges in the Annex.
