Power and technology

Well so it seems that we really do rely on technology more and more and yet something as simple as ice can take it all away. The great news for libraries is that our numbers go up when the power goes out. Our branch was packed this past week and people looked for places to have meetings, eat their food, read by light and of course check on their facebook status's. But along with the increased people comes increased waiting time for the Internet which equals RAISED TEMPERS. That whole week in September was awful and now without power people do not have heat which makes all of us much crankier, myself included.
So with our increased independence on technology what do we do with the fact that wind or even ice can take it all away?

Very thankful for my power and heat back! No more camping inside.

First blog! whoo-hoo!

Here we are. And now I hit the wall...what to write about, what to write about?!

For all in louisville, make sure you stop by the new chick-fil-a on Shelbyville Road this week. I think they are giving away free breakfasts this week from 7-10 for their grand opening...and if you see an icicle that resembles a person hanging out beside a dancing cow...wave and say hi to Susan! ;-)

Classes have started for the semester. One class is an information technology class for which I had to create this fabulous blog. So as the semester goes along I will be writing on library technologies. Sounds super interesting eh?! Maybe someone at LFPL will read my amazing thought and implement said ideas. Like maybe more than 10 computers at Middletown?! Anyone? Anyone?!

Looking forward to this weekend and the playoffs! GO STEELERS!
