Enough?

Hi, i was a member of the Westland library for years, and while I understand that not every library is the same the Canton library offers far fewer programs for children. Even after 2 years my daughters still beg to go to the Westland for Sidewalk chalk, craft days, guessing jar, weekly prizes, friendly staff who remembered our names, consistent story times. My daughters love story time, but at Canton, there are so many breaks and excuses for breaks we can't keep up. There is no incentive to go to the library with the connect program. It really feels like the librarians do not truly want children there which is a feeling many in my neighborhood have expressed as well. Maybe if some of the librarians that have children were able to make more decisions, things might be able to change. Here's to hoping one day my daughters actually like our library.

Dear Sir/Madam: This is my first year as a librarian, and I will be teaching an 8th grade introduction to the library class this May.

Resume Changes for the Unemployed

-Would you consider adding to your programs several more time offerings for rewriting resumes? It can mean the difference in standing out or just blending in when there are so many applicants for each position. In my case I had a very specific curriculum for my major but many years in the field and life experience as well. I'd like to know how to situate these in a resume. Thank you for your consideration!

summer reading program

PLEASE - go back to a summer reading program that ACTUALLY involves READING! Earning virtual badges on the computer has NOTHING to do w/summer reading. My goal is to get the kids OFF the computer.

summer reading program

I am doing the summer reading program with my 7 grandchildren who live around the USA. I am not very computer savey but did register as a group. I am not sure how I report on how we did our reading or "projects". I did notice that there are a few other badges on the badge page that there are no listed experiences for; connect, lab rat, & volunteer, I did understand the registration one. Please help an old lady out! Thanks,
