Hey! What About the Other Pole?

This is the time of year where most people are focusing their efforts and thoughts upon the all-important North Pole, from where they hope to receive many new toys and treasures. However, during this week in 1907, the World’s greatest explorers were more interested in the other side of the globe and the South Pole!

Lost Within the Library

Perhaps you’ve checked out and then misplaced library material (I’m not judging; no one’s perfect), but were you aware that sometimes items get lost within the library itself? Sometimes patrons look at an item and put it back in the wrong place, sometimes an item falls behind a shelf or a new volunteer misplaces it, and, sometimes, just sometimes, we put it in the wrong place ourselves (like I said, no one’s perfect). So please have a little patience when we have to trace an item that you want. Besides, doesn’t the anticipation make it that much sweeter when we do find the item? (I’m going to pretend I don’t see you shaking your head ‘no’).

There is No Such Thing as a Stupid Question

Many patrons walk around confused, unsure how to find what they want. They don’t know what all those orange envelopes hold or even where to put the books they decide they don’t want. Remember: there is no such thing as a stupid question! Even ‘Where is the bathroom?’ is a great question if it keeps you from vomiting on the floor or having some other kind of ‘accident’, if you know what I mean.
