Mother's Day 2017 - Austintown, OH Public Library Closed

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That's what I thought when I saw the signs on the Austintown, Ohio public library. Yes, the public library was closing for Mother's Day. So I asked her why the library was treating it as such. Mothers are a key constituency for supporting public libraries.

Intelligence: Libraries gone within 5 years

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Public libraries are all sorts of entities, ranging from where we can borrow books to where we can hang out as third places. During the past few weeks I have been talking with those who man the front desks of libraries.    Communities are less and less willing to support the library any more.    They anticipate that this institution, as we've known it, will be gone within five years.

How to start building a library of photos

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

They asked where they could find a library of good photos that their department could use in presentations. How do you create a library of the ones you find suitable for your business? To this library that you build from the stock photography sites, add photos that you take yourself. But once those are understood, look for opportunities to add to your library of photos with ones you take at your company or in public.

The North Haven, Connecticut Public Library has evolved into the working person's secret weapon.    The staff at the New Haven Public Library stepped right up to the plate.    On the Internet, in the reading section with business newspapers such as THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, and amidst the books, there are so many like me, here at the North Haven Public Library struggling to get an edge in the current marketplace.

Public Speaking: Taking That First Step

Manner of Speaking

While we were in Toronto, I followed the debate that was raging (and which continues to rage as of the date of this post) about closing public libraries to reduce municipal government costs. Anika is to be commended because she had the courage to speak in front of others—in a very public forum, no less—on a subject about which she cares deeply: preserving Toronto’s public libraries. This summer, my family and I returned to Canada for a vacation.

Screaming Kids - Yes, Regulate Them Out Of Public Places

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

And that they are doing in restaurants, transportation facilities, and even libraries. Recently, I was in the Woods public library in Tucson, Arizona. I left the library. Supposed modern parents assume that it's "natural" for their kids to scream in public places. Many members of society are not as tolerant. We want regulations created about how long that screaming can go on before the child and caretaker have to be ejected from the scene.
