I visited the Teamwork room and completed the Orientation Board. The clues spell out: CCPL is leading the way to lifelong learning and enjoyment. I printed out the ticket for the grand finale. I updated my address for the emergency contacts. I visited some team sites. One was intranet.carr.org/Learning/teams/CCPL50th.asp
I visited the Staff Association room and learned that Nancy Haile is my representative here at HQ. I also learned that several of the ladies can sing and apparently like "The Sound of Music". Scott Rinehart dropped by and told me, in response to my e-mail, that a new project he is working on is the game dispenser at TAC. I also viewed another new wiki of the Finksburg branch progress.
I visited the Outreach department. I know these people, but I had not seen the detention center library, or what the day care van services provide. I have helped with crowd control for several kindergarten puppet shows: Brier Rabbit, Anasi the Spider, and Three Billy Goats Gruff.
I visited the CTR room. I knew the basics about telephone reference, but it was my first experience with "Ask Us Now". That was really helpful. I chatted with a MD Pratt/SLRC Librarian and ask when and where the first library system was established. I was directed to a wikipedia site.
