Missouri Libraries Snapshot Day 2016

Today,  September 14, 2016 was a day to share with the world what goes on in 21st century libraries on a daily basis.  I remembered to take a few photos & post them on twitter, but below is a list of what happened in my life and library today...


  • Started my day with a stop at Starbucks for a latte for Mrs. Haynes and I.
  • Opened the library around 7:20.
  • Welcomed some kiddos who thought our bookclub started this morning instead of next Wednesday.

  • Asked our nurse to check over my list of summer readers for allergy issues before our ice cream celebration.
  • Tried to trouble shoot why my Britannica database isn't working on ipads...argh!
  • Greeted students outside the library as the bell rang and we started our day.

  • Throughout the day I helped kids locate books, set goals, trouble shoot devices, put on a bandaid or two, reminded kids about choosing kind and making good choices over and over:), looked at wiggly teeth, and verified that a grant I submitted was received.
I have the best job ever!
