Make me number seven! Seven staff members have retired or departed in the past seven months. Now it's me--Jan Conover! I'm a member of the Reference Department, setting up zany (and sometimes crazy) displays, ordering new books, weeding old items, tracking down hard-to-find titles for interlibrary loan, presenting genealogy and internet classes, trying to stay on top of tax forms from January to April, and doing my best to answer every query with an excellent answer, a library item or interlibrary loan help.
Merrimack has a library that is very service-orieneted and friendly. It has creative ideas for offering services and programs for all ages. Staff and Trustees are always looking for a better ways to use the limited and well-worn building with new spaces for laptops, reading and tutoring, and that extra nook for library materials. The library is a great spot to find a book to read for fun, for work, for learning a new topic or for a favorite project. You can check out music CD's and audiobooks (or download them to your device through http://nh.lib.overdrive.com.) Old classic and recent release movies are on hand. There are e-games and college courses on DVD. You can even borrow a museum pass if you reserve ahead of time. Stop on by, meet our new Library Director Yvette Couser, and enjoy a wonderful community resource.
I'll be out to lunch with friends, volunteering at Currier Museum or sitting in our sunroom reading a good book!
