Hello Fellow B'LONG Members,
This is the first email since our newly appointed President, Secretary, and Committee. I would like to introduce Mari Buttweiler, myself, and Daniel Rice to the group.
Mari Buttweiler is currently an Information and Reader Services Librarian at the Highland Park Public Library and has been in the library world for half a decade. She has served in several roles including Media Services, Inclusive Services, and Outreach and is particularly passionate about advancing social services and EDI.
My name is Stephanie Bone and I am the Community Engagement Coordinator for the Indian Trails Library in Wheeling. I have been in the library world for a year now, I am always learning and (almost) always loving my job. I worked at a brewery before my current position where I developed community outreach in any capacity I could.
Danny Rice is the Director of Mobile Library Services at the Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, IL, where he currently oversees a fleet of 4 vehicles that carry out 7 services. Gail Borden has recently added technology outreach services, Bookmobile visits to local elementary schools, and a streamlined Bookmobile Stop Request Form.
We are excited to take on these roles and to announce that the next quarterly meeting will be on May 12 from 1 - 2 pm.
Here is the Zoom link to join the meeting:
Meeting ID: 875 3791 6703
We will have an exciting update and a few topics for discussion. I will be sending out an agenda closer to the meeting date. I will also be sending you a calendar invite with the Zoom link to mark your calendars.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to Mari (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I (email@example.com).
