Director’s Report
June 2019
Invasion of the Stuffies!

Our second annual Stuffed Animal Sleepover was a huge success, with 71 of our young patrons' stuffies spending the night on May 15th. What a raucous party! They roasted s'mores, worked on the puzzle, and much more. Steadfast Library Associates Karen Nicholson and Debbie Chevron, with help from Kaysie Taylor and Ellen Miles, took photos of each activity. Once happily reunited with their stuffed animal, each patron was presented with a set of photos of their stuffie having fun overnight in the Library.

Please come in and visit our new permanent Sister City displays. The Japanese cities, Hosoe and Taki, are located next to the travel section and feature artifacts presented to us from delegates over the years. The Polish cities, Karpkowice, Morawica, and Zabierzow, are located next to the languages section and feature artwork and books, also gifted to us by our sister citizens. If you stop by on Friday, you may actually see some of our Sister City friends from Poland! They plan to tour the Library around 3.

camaspubliclibraryLast night we celebrated the retirement of our dear friend and colleague, Denise Warner, who has been with the Library since 1993. She is a ray of sunshine on even the gloomiest of days, and she will be sorely missed. Today all the the City of Camas employees joined the celebration, as it’s not just Denise retiring but her husband Mark, who has worked in the City’s Finance Department since 1996. Best of luck on your travels, Warner family!

With Denise's retirement, we thought it might be fun to see how many years the staff have collectively. 

The infograph below shows the differences between our long-term staff and our new employees. We can use both groups to the others' advantage, from the wisdom gained over the years here in Camas, to the variety of experiences picked up in other organizations.
