Do you have a favorite Tweet from the last week? If so add it in the comments for this post. Or, if you read a post between October 8, 2010 and October 14, 2010 that you think is great, send me a direct message on Twitter (@lbraun2000) and it will go into the pool for consideration for next week’s posting.
I was cranky on that day when I couldn’t help a patron put a book on her nook, but things are improving regarding our ability to do so. I talked with some coworkers and we are going to install the OverDrive Console on the Help Desk computer on the main floor and on at least one machine to start with in our computer lab. We will soon be able to help patrons who want to download e-books and e-audio!
