4.13.23 Library Boot Camp

Dear Friends,

Back home and feeling relaxed and ready for spring! I had a wonderful time down south. I saw many whales and was treated to epic sunsets every night. I am grateful for my time away, the rest, and the opportunity to claim perspective again.

Daffodils kindly greeted me on my way to work, but I confess I was a bit overwhelmed on my first day back. I grew used to being on “vacation time,” but Skidompha is always bustling with energy, new programs, books, and experiences.

Speaking of programs, I want to let you know about our Library Bootcamp coming up over National Library week! 

On Monday, April 24, celebrate National Library Week with Skidompha Library by joining us for a one-of-a-kind library experience. From in-depth tours of the collection to trying your hand at being a librarian to learning how to request books and use databases, this day is sure to have something for everyone. Sessions run from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, and you may register (required) for one or all of the following sessions:

9:00 am – 12:00 pm A peek behind the Scenes at Skidompha Library!
1:00 pm – 1:30 pm All About Your Online Library Account
1:30 pm – 2:30 pm How to Get What You Want (and not what you don’t want)
2:30 pm – 3:30 pm Accessing eBooks, Audiobooks, & More
3:30 pm – 4:30 pm Beyond the Catalog – Additional Online Resources

We’ll supply coffee and donuts in the morning. Bring a brown bag for lunch! To register, please email info@skidompha.org or call 207-887-0919.

I urge you all to consider joining us on the 24th to learn more about the library, what we do here, and how to become a Super-Powered Skidompha patron.

Be well,

Matthew Graff
Executive Director
