A message of gratitude from the director…

photo-1415912364061-78a25859c0faAfter all of the recent terrorist threats, I think we are all feeling especially close to family and loved ones this Thanksgiving. I am thankful for so much this year, it is hard to list it all, indeed, I need categories!

Library colleagues do indeed get their own category. I appreciate engaged library staff (like you) who continue to use our services and engage in our programming. Whether you are reading and/or commenting on our weekly blog posts, liking our Facebook page, retweeting our Tweets, writing book reviews or other blog posts, suggesting ideas for programming, applying for scholarships, participating in our Quick Question Polls, or attending our events, you are the heart of what we define as resource sharing!

CMLE staff  are thankful for the opportunity to serve your needs, and to work with you to increase the capacity of all types of libraries in Central Minnesota! It is our privilege to work with talented and engaged library staff and we thank you for the opportunity!

Programming Idea: Use a whiteboard in the library with a “What are YOU thankful for?” heading, then sit back, and observe a showplace of thanks big and small!

Happy Thanksgiving!
