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

Human Resources

The staff in the department are: Muffie Smith, Terri Simmons, Kim Smithson, and Jaclyn Smith. I especially like Muffie's sunglasses. Checking on my acculated benefits was especially helpful to me.

Staff Association

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.

Technical Services

It was cute the way Elaine took you through the book processing from the view of the book.

Operations and Facilities

Although I did horrible of Scott's quiz. I do know that the Facilities Manager is Tom Sheets, the IT manager is Bob Kuntz, and Tech. Services is headed up by Elaine Adkins.

Outreach Services

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.
