Monday Update

May 4, 2015

Good morning!

May the Fourth be with you.

I couldn't resist a Star Wars reference today. I grew up with those movies and remember seeing the Empire Strikes Back at a beautiful old movie theater in downtown Kankakee with my brother.

A few highlights from the staff meeting last week:

  • I've contacted Joel Pratt about extending our EBSCO trials until the next fiscal year. If all goes well with the budget, we will be adding those two.
  • I'll plan to set up a CHOICE trial in early fall.
  • If you haven't had a chance yet, please make time to fill out the PALnet survey.
  • I'll be working on a new Showcase display this week. The next one will feature Michigan Notable Books.
  • One side of the kiosk display will become staff picks featuring a different staff member each month. I'll be sending a Google doc invitation to a sign up sheet.

As of now, my calendar is current. I am taking vacation days on Wednesday and Friday. Thursday, I will be out all day for Leadership Genesee.

Have a great week everyone!
