I was thinking of writing a post-election post about how awful the world is and how important public libraries are and how I'm proud to be part of a profession that values everyone, but I'm just too damn sad and disgusted. So here is something different.
This evening, I am doing my first ever program that isn't a book club and is all by myself! It's about replacing your cable service with streaming options. I get to demo some hardware--specifically, I somehow convinced the director that she should buy me a Chromecast. Yesterday I hooked that Chromecast up to our projector and synced it up with my phone so I could show the program participants what 'casting' something looks like. Anyway, I got paid to spend 10 minutes deciding what Youtube video to show them as an example. I know it's down to the wire and I should know by now, but I'm still deciding between two otters holding hands and a penguin with a backpack that looks like a penguin. Maybe I'll ask one of my children's librarian colleagues, as they are the in-house experts both on programs and on things that are adorable.
