Being a Library Director of a municipal library is an exercise in juggling tasks. And no task is to small to require attention. The production of the LaGrange Association Library’s quarterly newsletter is an ‘all hands on deck’ affair. Both our Children’s Librarian and our Adult Programmer spend months planning events which are engaging and stimulating for our community. I applaud them for planning months, nay seasons, ahead of time.
From there, we have a talented designer on staff who creates an attractive newsletter listing information on these events and activities offered by the library. The printer returns 6000 copies to us. We fold, sticker/seal and apply a mailing label to 5 423 newsletters…one for each household in our town. This effort often requires taking newsletters home to work on in the evenings , including the library director.
As the Canadian Men’s bobsled team raced, I was cheering them on, mailing labels stuck to each of my fingers at my dinning room table. Much of the Socchi Winter Olympic Games was spent at the dining room table.
Once the Spring newsletters are ready to go, they must be stuffed into US Postal trays.
