March 2016: Outreach Newsletter

  1. 1. Westerville Public Library The Outreach M a r c h / A p r i l 2 0 1 6N e w s l e t t e r 7 4  Employee Spotlight  Did You Know?  Manager’s Corner  Remember When Story Times  Upcoming Events @Westerville Public Library: Outreach Every now and then we have featured in our newsletter a patron biography so that you, the reader, can get to know others who utilize our services. But we have realized that maybe not everyone knows who is working behind the scenes here in Outreach. So, here goes. Meet Meredith. You may not have seen her out and about on deliveries quite as much as the rest of us but you are sure to see her behind the wheel of our Link Van (pictured). Meredith, a native of Westerville, is our Library Link representative...the other part of our Outreach services. While the rest of us are out delivering to senior centers, apartments, and patron’s homes, Meredith is out delivering to all the kids in the school district. She visits every Westerville City school and a few other private schools within the district. That’s about 28 schools EVERYday– five days a week. In addition she also helps out with children’s story times at local day cares. So, it’s safe to say she keeps busy. Meredith is an ace cook and took top prize in the Library’s first (employee) soup and chili cook-off. When she’s not at work, you’ll find her chasing storms, riding her bike, enjoying local music with her friends or putting the finishing touches on her latest painting. Employee Spotlight
  2. 2. P a g e 2 (Marie’s program projects) Did you know that this year’s Olympics will be the 31st Olympiad? This year they will be held in Brazil from August 5 -21, 2016. Manager’s Corner DID YOU KNOW? Did you know that we can deliver other things besides books? The Westerville Public Library has thousands of music CD’s, magazines, audio- books and DVD’s, both old and new, from which to choose. Please note that because of the popularity of the DVD’s, we do need to pick those up approximately two weeks prior to your next delivery date. There is an exception! If you have a “nonfiction” DVD, identified by having a number rather than a title on the spine la- bel, those can be kept the entire month! So you do not need to return these on a movie pick-up day unless you are done with them. You can always go on- line and order your own material or you can call us with your requests. Please note that new, popular items may require you go on a wait list. *Julie Kerns is also a NOTARY and will be glad to come to your home to notarize items for you. Please call us if you need this service. 614-259-5034. Julie Kerns, Outreach Manager Remember when story times Do you like to listen to stories and share your own? Remember When Story Time is an interactive group program based on an ever-changing theme. This program includes not only stories read aloud by a librarian, but also music, pictures, props, and activi- ties. Come interact and share memo- ries based on common experiences and topics. Some past themes include summertime, cars, entertainment, and holidays. Take a look at the popsicle stick picture puzzles created for our Art themed program! If you would like to participate in this program, let your Activity Director know or contact Outreach at 614-259-5034.
