Love Your Library showing up on websites throughout the state... must be getting closer to the holidays

LION now has the Love Your Library project linked from their homepage. I'm also getting exciting reports in from libraries about how they're using LYL to create partnerships with neighboring libraries. This may be one unanticipated but wonderful side benefit from the project. Congratulations to Enfield, Farmington, and Manchester for facilitating such partnerships. And a huge thank you to the other libraries who are taking their time to get involved. We've shipped out the LYL vouchers via C-CAR. We're getting the posters finalized this week.

In other iCONN outreach-related news, Steve Cauffman brilliantly redesigned our 10 Big Ideas for Educators brochure. It looks great and is completely updated. It will be available at our booth at CEMA next week. Bill Sullivan, our project Administrator - not to be outdone - has created enlargements of the updated "Attention - Free to All Connecticut Residents" flyer, which lists all resources currently available through iCONN. He's made these into posters and has them being mailed out in the coming week, so libraries can hang them up wherever they think it will be helpful to patrons. The October (fall quarter) iCONN Times is also now available online.

A lot of the recent work on flyers, posters, and brochures has been facilitated by our new, high-capacity, full-color, ImageRunner copier/printer/scanner - I guess you might say, "document center". It's got more features than we'll probably ever figure out how to use. But since it arrived a few weeks ago, we've been doing our best to try it out!
