Can't believe I haven't been back to add to the blog. Well I now work at Odenton and my commute is much shorter. I was an Early Literacy Specialist for one year and now just help out now and then. I just got my new assignment for 2016 and it is supervisor of volunteers, the Job Search Specialist is gone so I no longer supervisor her. The house got a new back porch complete with a ramp. It really looks nice. The construction was supposed to take 14 days and it took 7 months.

PTH Schedule Computerized

Well, after 3 years of waiting the schedule for pth is now computerized. I am soooooo happy. The program not only lets me see where someone is working but also their hours. It will send out all confirmations which used to take alot of time. I have been working the desk 6 hours a day which leaves no time for anything else. We work short handed alot...can't wait until the economy gets better. Next week we have our Halloween Storytime program. I need to check out what books I will be doing.On a personal note they started the construction at the house. The cement truck was there today to pour the cement in the concrete blocks.

SRC Arrangements

It is that time of year to start planning for SRC and the big kickoff. I have scheduled Sneaks to visit four of the local elementary schools. I have the Sneaks costume reserved and a volunteer to wear the suit. I have talked with the one elementary school and their students are going to make drawings and we will decorate the library with them. We had a meeeting and out of 10 different crafts we picked 3 they are paper plate pictures, clown and girl made out of clothes pins, a magic wand. There will be chalk to draw your favorite character or book cover outside and a teen rap poetry wall. Still trying to get volunteers for face painting. The t-shirts went on advance sale today to staff and teachers. We have not had any volunteen applications returned yet.

March 19, 2009

I had a program on personal safety which the county police crime prevention unit spoke to the patrons. Not very good turn out only 9 people showed up. People are not coming out after dark. The library is very deserted once the sun goes down. The next program is on Saturday morning. Hope we get a better crowd otherwise no more programs for adults...the ones for kids always get a hugh turnout.
