Timberland Libraries Boost Service Hours

Posted on by

first_imgSubmitted by Timberland Regional Library Facebook86Tweet0Pin0 Library patrons in the five-county Timberland Regional Library (TRL) service area asked for longer hours; starting September 2, they’ve got them! District-wide, 26 libraries and the Ask-A-Librarian service will add hours – a total of 58 more each week. The increased schedules come at no additional cost.TRL administration, branch librarians and staff members gathered public comments in the libraries, at public meetings and from online surveys. They counted usage hours, studied peak use times for computers, meeting space and circulation materials. Then they got creative – shifting people and duties into longer open hours and reducing the amount of work done while libraries are closed.Many communities will experience an increase in Saturday hours, resulting in all libraries being open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The new schedule provides more consistent, easy-to-remember opening times and in the largest libraries an extra hour on Friday evenings.“Libraries are at the heart of healthy communities,” Timberland Library Director Cheryl Heywood said. “They have one simple mission: to serve the public.”“To do this,” Heywood continued, “we have to listen to our communities, understand the issues and make the best changes possible. More open hours,” she added, “is a very good change.”last_img read more

Temba Bavuma’s 3 year old tweet comes back to haunt him as Kohli and…

Powered by Firework Three years ago, South African batsman Temba Bavuma was so awestruck watching Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane bat against a solid New Zealand team, that he couldn’t help but tweet about their ‘masterclass’ innings. But what he didn’t know, was that the duo and the tweet would come back to haunt him 3 years later during the ongoing Pune Test.Advertisement During the 3rd Test against the Kiwis, on October 2016, Kohli and Rahane put up a massive 365-run partnership for the 4th wicket which helped India declare at the score of 557 in the 1st innings. Kohli scored 211 and Rahane just fell short of a double hundred at 188. And Bavuma who enjoyed every moment of their innings, tweeted saying: ‘Kohli & Rahane, could watch these guys bat all day #masterclass #indvsnz’.Advertisement Unfortunately for him, that old tweet caught everyone’s eye three years later as the Indian skipper and his deputy, with a partnership of 178, piled on the runs on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test in Pune. Virat Kohli scored a sublime double hundred helping the hosts sail towards a commanding first-innings total on Friday. And Rahane, who was dismissed after scoring an important 59, went through the first session unscathed.India declared their innings on 601/5 and Kohli, playing his 50th test as the Indian skipper, remained unbeaten at 254. His magnificent innings was supported from the other end by Ravindra Jadeja (91) whose crucial cameo came handy after the hosts lost Rahane just after Lunch.South Africa meanwhile, have been unable to find an answer for India’s pace attack and lost 3 important wickets (including that of Bavuma’s) at the end of the days play.Poor old Bavuma, his wish has been finally granted. Literally!  Advertisementlast_img read more
