Gratitude in November

Here at Beavercreek Community Library, I look forward to the beautiful month of November each year. The weather has cooled off, it’s a time for reflecting, and an opportunity to appreciate all the blessings in life. I consider one my greatest blessings to be the privilege of working at the library. I love being a librarian, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the Beavercreek community!

For November’s blog, I asked some of our library’s fantastic staff members the following question: “What library service or program are you most grateful for and why?” Here are their thoughtful answers.

Sensory Story Time—I am grateful for the relationships that have been formed and connections being made for parents.”
Anjanette Hook, Youth Services Librarian

“The automatic renewal process because it keeps better track of my things than I do.”
Rebecca Smarra, Circulation Clerk

“The Summer Reading Program because it encourages people to read—both adults and children of all ages.”
Joe Terpenning, Library Aide

“As a (former) college student I was forever grateful that we had the EBSCO MasterFile Premier! I used it for all of my homework assignments that required legitimate sources and it's so easy to find and use on the library's website!”
Krista Lackey, Youth Services Librarian

“I like the electronic audiobook services because you can search three different resources—RBdigital, Hoopla, and Libby / OverDrive—and I can almost always find what I’m looking for.”
Elaine Robinson, Adult Services Librarian

I wish you all a wonderful November and Thanksgiving holiday!

Nancy Madden, Beavercreek Head Librarian
