Library Staff Welcome Back Table and Roaming Staff Help – a big success again this year!

Library Welcome Table 2010The Library staff Welcome Back Table was once again well received. The library staff greeted one and all with good cheer, candy, and much needed help in finding a class or answering a newbie student question. The staff and a table full of candy and maps proved to be a truly welcoming oasis to stressed students on two very hot muggy opening school days.  Along with the staff at the table, other library staff “roamed” nearby looking to help those easily identifiable frantic students look for a class in Dion or, in one case, a class sitting in a room without a professor. Yes, many interesting things turn up on the first few days of school and the library staff is glad to contribute to helping make the beginning of the school year a good start for all.
