Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for October

The October 2013 New City Library Board Meeting marks the 6th month of my employment.

I am happy that the Board of Trustees has come together to approve unanimously all of the library-beneficial projects that have been placed before them.  They have recognized consistently that what is best for the library is worthy of their support. 

I will offer a few general statements and then review where the library stands on the initiatives that have been proposed and approved for implementation.

What's Cooking?: On the Road...

Are you captivated by food shows like I am?  When there aren’t any good films showing on television, I always surf the food and travel channels.  I seem to gravitate toward food shows that go on the road or travel through exotic places and cultures such as Bizarre Foods, Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and The Great Food Truck Race. One reason why I don’t tire from watching is the coverage of such diversified foods from the familiar to the unusual. It is just fascinating to observe the creative cooking that abounds in humble surroundings.
