MartaReidVTStateLibrarianThis past week I attended a talk and poetry reading by Texas poet Naomi Shihab Nye held on the UVM campus. Telling stories about her life and work as a poet, interspersed with readings of her own poems as well as poems by others including poet William Stafford, she moved her audience to laughter, poignant sighs of shared compassion, and ultimately joy. The next day I joined librarian Barbara Shatara to welcome Ms. Nye to the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington where she signed a poster that bears the text of a poem that she had written years before at that very library.

"Geek the Library"
Campaign Program April 30

What do you "geek?" Photography? Poetry? Bird-watching? Deep sea diving? Civil War history? Libraries are all about helping folks of all ages learn about and explore those subjects which spark personal passion - what we individually "geek." The "Geek the Library" Campaign is a PR program for public libraries, from the library cooperative OCLC and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, designed to build awareness of what local libraries do to support life-long learning and personal enrichment. The OCLC Campaign will end in June - but there is still time for Vermont public libraries to register for participation in the "Geek the Library" program. Once registered, libraries will have access to assistance from the OCLC team through June 2015. Read more

Now in its 40th year, National Library Legislative Day focuses on the need to fund the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), support legislation that gives people who use libraries access to federally-funded scholarly journal articles, continue funding that provides school libraries with vital materials and bring other library-related issues of import to the attention of members of the US Congress. The Vermont team will attend ALA training and briefing sessions and will make visits to the offices of Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders and Congressman Peter Welch to discuss these issues.

MARTYFrom the Vermont State Librarian

This past week I attended a talk and poetry reading by Texas poet Naomi Shihab Nye held on the UVM campus. Telling stories about her life and work as a poet, interspersed with readings of her own poems as well as poems by others including poet William Stafford, she moved her audience to laughter, poignant sighs of shared compassion, and ultimately joy. The next day I joined librarian Barbara Shatara to welcome Ms. Nye to the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington where she signed a poster that bears the text of a poem that she had written years before at that very library.

 

In recognition of National Poetry Month and National Library Week I want to share that poem with all of you - with a photo of the poet standing in front of those very gardening tools that she writes about in her poem. Let's celebrate the words and the message of the poet - and celebrate libraries everywhere for what they offer to all of us: quiet space, the language of poets and inspiration to read, learn, ponder, and create.

 

Burlington, VT Naomi Shihab Nye

 

In the lovely free public library

only library I ever met

that loans out garden tools

as well as books

rakes & long-handled clippers

from large buckets by the counter

I sat in a peaceful room

with citizens I will never know

reading about far-away war

war I am paying for

war I don't want & never wanted

& put my head down

on the smooth wooden table

wishing to weep loudly or quietly

it did not matter

In the purifying presence of

women & men

shovels & hoes

devoted to growing

 

From Naomi Shihab Nye's book Transfer, BOA Editions, LTD, 2011.

webinar"Geek the Library" Campaign Program April 30  

What do you "geek?" Photography? Poetry? Bird-watching? Deep sea diving? Civil War history? Libraries are all about helping folks of all ages learn about and explore those subjects which spark personal passion - what we individually "geek." The "Geek the Library" Campaign is a PR program for public libraries, from
the library cooperative OCLC and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, designed to build awareness of what local libraries do to support life-long learning and personal enrichment. The OCLC Campaign will end in June - but there is still time for Vermont public libraries to register for participation in the "Geek the Library" program. Once registered, libraries will have access to assistance from the OCLC team through June 2015.

 

Jennifer Powell, from OCLC's "Geek the Library" Campaign, will be in Vermont on April 30 to talk to librarians about the program and to distribute Campaign materials. We encourage all interested librarians to attend one of these two sessions:

  • April 30, 10:00 am - noon, Dorothy Alling Memorial Library in Williston
  • April 30, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., Brown Public Library in Northfield

No need to register for these programs.

 

The "Geek" project provides materials (posters, bookmarks, etc.) and ideas for local libraries to use in their own customized PR program. Even very small libraries can use the campaign and integrate it in simple ways to build community awareness of local programs and services. But supplies of these materials are limited, so interested libraries are encouraged to attend one of these sessions and to register online. Visit http://get.geekthelibrary.org/what-is-geek-the-library/ to learn more about the Campaign. For more information, contact Michael Roche at michael.roche@state.vt.us or Christine Friese at christine.friese@state.vt.us.

catamountALA to Present Public Service Award to Leahy 

Sen. Patrick Leahy will be honored by United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association (ALA), with the 2014 Public Service Award during National Library Legislative Day activities in Washington, DC, on May 5. The Award will be presented by Vermont State Librarian Martha Reid. The Public Service Award, United for Libraries' highest honor for legislators who support library issues, is being given for Leahy's introduction of S. 1599, the USA Freedom Act. This bill proposes amendments to the USA PATRIOT Act that would continue to protect the nation's security while implementing rules to preserve the privacy of American citizens.

 

Co-sponsored by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), who will also receive the Public Service Award, the bill would require the government to make disclosures about the intelligence surveillance it conducts, and establish a process for declassifying opinions issued by the FISA court. Additionally, the law would end the bulk collection of phone and other business records by the government of US citizens, allow telecommunications and Internet companies to make public the number of FISA orders and national security letters received and complied with, and allow those receiving a national security letter to immediately challenge it in court.

 

The ALA's involvement in privacy policies stems from the library principle to protect patron confidentiality. "We waited for more than a decade for privacy reforms of this magnitude," said ALA President Barbara Stripling. "The public deserves more transparency and accountability than what we've been seeing from the Obama Administration. The library community welcomes this bipartisan effort because it shows us that reasonable privacy expectations are possible."

 

The Public Service Award is given annually by United for Libraries to a legislator who has been especially supportive of libraries. The first award was presented in 1989 to Congressman Major Owens (D-N.Y.), the only librarian serving in Congress. Other recent awardees include Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.), Rush Holt (D-N.J.), and Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.). For more information about the award, visit www.ala.org/united/grants_awards/public_service.

 

United for Libraries, the Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations, is a division of the American Library Association that supports those who govern, promote, advocate, and fundraise for libraries. United for Libraries brings together library trustees, advocates, friends, and foundations into a partnership that creates a powerful force for libraries in the 21st century. For more information or to join United for Libraries, contact Jillian Kalonick at (312) 280-2161 or jkalonick@ala.org.

Over 80 public library trustees and library directors came to an all-day workshop Saturday, April 12, on planning for the evolving space needs in Vermont's libraries. The workshop was co-sponsored by VTLIB and the Vermont Library Association.

 

Keynote speaker Pam Sandlian-Smith introduced the processes behind the renovation and new building projects at Anythink, the library system in Adams County Colorado that turned the worst-funded system in Colorado into a nationally-known group of public libraries leading the way in continuing innovation. Those changes in service models, in programming, in the role of the libraries in each community, led to very concrete changes in building design and the use of spaces. Pam provided an inspirational start to the day.

 

Attendees then heard from Vermont architects David Roy and Steven Roy of Wiemann Lamphere Architects and VTLIB regional consultant Rob Geiszler about preparing for projects and working with architects. After lunch the group broke into two sessions, one looking at two current library programs and their plans and issues, and one led by the architects considering the best use of shared spaces for flexibility.

 

The day's final session was a panel discussion with building consultant Tom Barden who has worked on several Vermont library projects, and with three Vermont librarians discussing recent building and renovation projects in Fairfield, Milton and Shoreham, with a project overview and best practices from their experiences.

 

The VTLIB website has links to resources mentioned throughout the day. The web page (http://libraries.vermont.gov/libraries/trustees/BuildingsDay2014) will be updated with pertinent building and space resources and details on future workshops and programs.

erateAdult Programs: Interesting, Easy      

Vermont librarians gathered at the Aldrich Library in Barre to talk about adult programs April 3. Citizen Science was the hit of the day as Susan Hindinger from the Vermont Center for Ecostudies demoed the amazing Vermont Atlas of Life at http://iNaturalist.org. Librarians learned how to find local observers who are contributing their observations to the Vermont Atlas and to answer the question how many species occur in Vermont? Build a program around teaching citizens how to post their photos, woods noises or sightings to contribute to the project. Science programming is the focus for the summer with the slogans "Fizz, Boom, Read" (children); "Spark a Reaction" (teens); and "Literary Elements" (adults).

 

Other popular ideas with the group:

  • Using the Vermont State Treasurer's Office to line up programs on financial literacy. Use http://MoneyEd.Vermont.gov to find local speakers for  parents and children, boomers nearing retirement, or seniors stretching a dollar;
  • Booking one part of  Freedom and Unity: the Vermont Movie with a Vermont film-maker to spur the discussion along;
  • Using the Vermont Speakers Bureau, a list of state resources developed by Teresa Faust, to find cheap, relevant topics by agency;
  • Planning a movie series using ideas from http://www.movlic.com/library/summer.

Resources from the Adult Programming workshop are posted at http://libraries.vermont.gov/handouts.
