End of Week Care Package

Post by Aleida, Information Services staff

Welcome to our fourth end of week care package! As library staff, we miss seeing all of you in person. We miss chatting with our regular customers. We miss meeting new folks every day. And we miss the general magic of all the chance encounters, unexpected conversations, and unpredictable questions that allow us to help and connect with others.  

If you are anything like I am, isolation, social distancing measures, and lack of routine can grind you down.  What helps me, is to focus on the things that bring me joy, make me laugh, and get me moving. I hope these moments, movies, books, and playlists can bring you some joy, laughter, positivity, and grooves!
