2017 Tour Update: Eclipse Edition
In case you’re interested in tracking our progress, there is an interactive map (with links to the full sized profile cards) now available: 2017 Tour. We’re going to be on the road a lot in the next few weeks with visits, so thank you for your patience if it takes a bit longer to get back to you than usual.
First Cataloging Party in Swayzee
We had an amazing turnout for the Swayzee Cataloging Party this week! 6 libraries sent staff as well as local staff and several board members, bringing our total to 18 participants. We cataloged 1,234 items and assisted with pulling materials to weed, with guest catalogers working on Adult Nonfiction and the home team fielding Adult Fiction. In the pictures above, you’ll see the weeding team working on the rear bookcases and catalogers at the tables/desk. We also greatly appreciate those staff who served as runners for the day, getting materials to the catalogers and then back to the shelves. Thanks to Dana and team for supplying a terrific spread of food to keep us all going!
