Letter from the Editor: The Power of Initiative

If there’s one thing we remember from the great Maya Angelou, it’s that if we don’t like something happening in our life, we need to change it. And if you can’t change it, you have to change the way you think about it. Whether it’s relationships, career or even maintaining social circles, taking initiative is essential if we want to succeed. When you show initiative, you do things without being told. You harness the strength of what you know and utilize it towards your advantage to keep things going when they get tough. Simply put, initiative is more action than reaction, and if you push yourself little by little each day, you can improve your circumstances.

National Library Week and The Importance of Libraries

I initially struggled with what to write to commemorate National Library Week, which runs from April 10-16, and National Library Workers’ Day, which is observed this year on April 12. It would be easy to write solely about myself and my own experiences (I’ve worked in libraries for almost 10 years now) but that didn’t […]

50:50? Why Super Bowl 50 Is Anything But a Toss-Up

This year’s NFL season has been anything but predictable. However, when it comes to Super Bowl 50 there will likely be only one result that would be truly surprising and that is a win for the Denver Broncos.

With the holidays approaching and another significant year ending, it’s hard to believe we will be starting afresh in just a few short days.
