Winter 2012 issue of Trustee

LTA had a busy and successful presence at the 2011 NYLA Conference in Saratoga. Attendees who stopped by our booth where able to navigate our website and also register for a drawing to win a Nook e-reader. The winner, Margie Morris, shared her thanks with LTA President O’Connor:

“I really enjoyed our conversation the other night. Thank you for getting the Nook to me so quickly. How exciting to win something like that! I had attended two sessions at NYLA that talked about e-read- ers and how the various libraries are using them. I thought I would go back to my library in Poestenkill and ask the Friends if they could purchase an e-reader for us to use and then loan out to patrons. Now I have one to use. I think what we will do first is let the few staff that we have take the Nook home and use it so they become familiar with it. One of our staff members has her own and is helping patrons to set up their accounts with Overdrive. The other three staff members do not have one - of course our youngest two staff people use multiple devices to read books but they are kids and grew up with this stuff. It’s the older staff and patrons that are hesitant to use them.

I really appreciate the opportunity I now have to offer the Nook to our staff. Once they have mastered it, we will begin to lend it out and hopefully, by this time next year, we will have several devices to loan out. Thanks for getting this off the ground for Poestenkill Library! “

Margie Morris, Director, Poestenkill Library
