Summer Reading Program: COVID version

Summer Reading Program: COVID version I just reread my Bookworm for last week and have to make 2 corrections.  CreativeBug is still not live and ready for use and Summer Reading Program (SRP) enrollment has been pushed off to May 26th. I have talked about protocol and...

What are we doing?

What we are doing Hopefully everything goes as planned and, as you are reading this, we are preparing to open the lobby on May 18th; I mentioned this in last week’s bookworm.  Our goal is to have 2 laptops for card catalogs to checkout items and 2 laptops for...

Opening

Opening Okay, I guess I should have written this last week, but I just wasn’t ready.  The governor did “open” the state on May 4th, but we did not open the library on that date.  This is the time for you to groan or to say bad words. Now I will give you some...

Trying to be positive

Trying to be positive Still tired of all of this, but I am determined to be only positive for this bookworm.  On Wednesday I “attended” a webinar focused on the Summer Reading Program grant I received.  Changes and encouraged amendments were discussed in the...

Week 456

Week 456 I am tired of this. Can that be all I write? Just kidding, you know I always find something to say.  I have not started journaling yet, but plan to this next week.  I will be sharing it on my personal page and when I get to work today I am creating...

This is how it feels

This is how it feels Monday I was on fire, I shopped for groceries and cleaned the house.  I felt ah-mazing!  Tuesday I was sad and found it hard to do anything.  Wednesday I woke up early and made our 4th closure protocol document, figured out Zoom and...

How are you doing?

How are you doing? Yep, we are still closed.  Our original day to reopen was April 6th, that has changed, with the advisement of the Health Center we will be closed until further notice. So, how are you doing?  Seriously, are you okay?  We are all...

Week 2 of Dystopia

Week 2 of Dystopia What do you write about when you have been “closed” since March 18th?  I know I have gone over our digital resources, but I am going to briefly visit them again, some things have changed.   OverDrive offers eBooks, audiobooks,...

Still Be Calm and Be Safe

Still Be Calm and Be Safe I think this is a perfect time to quote the classic film, Anchorman.  Ron Burgundy: Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast. Champ Kind: It jumped up a notch. Ron Burgundy: It did, didn’t it? The world has...

Be Calm

Be Calm Two days ago, I thought had my bookworm all planned out.  Then last night I read a director thread on the Coronavirus, which led to some internet searching.  Now I find myself staring at the screen, fretting over what to write and trying to keep my...
