Welcome to a librarian's online musings on libraries, literature and information media.

Improving access to NFPL’s Local History

Leave a comment

I am pleased to work with talented and eager staff at the Niagara Falls Public Library (NY).  By working together,  shifting a few duties,  we are able to increase the availability of the Niagara Falls Public Library’s Local History hours from 9 hours per week to 20 hours per week, all without an increase in cost to taxpayers.

Niagara Falls Public Library Executive Director Sarah Potwin, centre, worked with her staff to increase hours for the Local History department, which is operated by Librarian Courtney Geerhart, left, and clerk Helga Schultz, right. The three stand with an impressive exhibit Schultz assembled of notable Niagara County women, ranging from the Seven Sutherland Sisters to Joyce Carol Oates. (Robert Kirkham/Buffalo News)

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
