Subject: Happy 1923 public domain day!

A geeky celebration I know but January 1 2019 was the first time anything entered the public domain in the United States for 20 years.
Among the titles I am excited about are The Prophet by Kahil Gibran,  Gorges and the grant of the Province of Maine by Henry Burbage and The Harp Weaver by Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Subject: Bob Pyle

Rich,

Thank you for sharing this sad news.  The newspaper tribute was wonderful.  As Miriam Pyke said, Bob was a character. I can't vouch for his being "authentic" - somehow I feel like Bob would deny that with an appropriate quip.

I'll cherish the memories of Bob's wonderful stories - some philosophical - some howlingly funny.  This gift is an undervalued benefit of getting to spend time with our professional colleagues whenever the opportunity presents itself.

My condolences to his family and his many friends and colleagues.

Nancy

Subject: Looking for donations of Large Print Books

We have a patron who is trying to revamp the patient library at EMMC.  She has a decent collection of regular print but would like to increase the amount of large print books available to give out.  Does anyone out in Library Land have a few that they would like to donate to a good cause?

Except in the US - "the 1976 copyright reforms extended copyright, and 1998's so-called "Mickey Mouse" term extension went even further. Thanks to those laws, much pre-1976 material that is not already in the public domain was granted a 95-year period of copyright protection; books published since now have life+70 protection" ( https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2010/01/nothing-to-celebrate-on-public-domain-day-2010-in-the-us/

Subject: Career directions in the news

National Parks article "No English? No problem." (Melanie D. G. Kaplan, Winter 2019) noted the need for multiple language skills in their National Park employees.  Languages mentioned: Mandarin, Spanish, French, Hebrew, German, Polish, Japanese, Somali Vietnamese, and Portuguese.

IF National Parks are looking for these skills, then nearby local businesses will also benefit from employees who speak more than one language.

What does, or can, your library do to help people become aware of this needed skill in their career/job planning?
