  • 1. LEARNING Created by: Julie Zamostny NEWSLETTERJan/Feb 2012
  • 2. a message from julie: “As you may have noticed … or not, because no one said anything to me … I’ve been slacking on putting out a monthly learning newsletter. I am very sorry for my lack of follow through and I hope it hasn’t affected you negatively. In an effort to continue the evolution of the learning newsletter, I’m trying out a new format, a viewsletter if you will. It affords me greater opportunity to be creative and I hope it will afford you greater opportunity to enjoy experiencing the learning news that happens across Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties. As always, your feedback is welcomed.”

By providing excellent customer service as a library that makes every effort to adapt and grow, and by communicating messages about library services, the library will be more visible and integral to the community, and our future growth and viability will be further supported by funders, increasing our ability to provide the resources needed to sustain our organization in the future. The team will make it easier for staff to do a great job, give staff the tools they need to do a great job, and satisfy staff with more support.

And for the patron who wants a weekly dose of Civil War news, 150 years ago in the Hagerstown papers tells of the Battle of Hancock, the Skirmish at Dam 4 and all other war related events.
