Congratulations to Brian Jennings

On Sunday, May 17, the Historical Society of Rockland County hosted a supper on the beautiful grounds of the Jacob Blauvelt house in New City.  The Society celebrated and honored the winners of the annual Rockland County Executive's Historic Preservation Merit Award.  Among the honorees was our own local history librarian, Brian Jennings, who won the award for Preservation Leadership. Brian joined us only a year and a half ago, and in that time he has exhibited his passion for local history with innovative programming and usage of digital technology to preserve our paper and microfilm resources.  Check out his burgeoning collection of Rockland County oral histories (http://www.newcitylibrary.org/oralhistory). And stay tuned for his Listen 'n' Learn programs - where selected excerpts from these recordings are played and discussed with the interview subjects.  It's a great way to experience living history up close and personally!

Better Than Google

Technology moves faster than a superhero.  I heard a quote the other day “that technology used to change every one to two years, now its one to two days”!  How can one keep up with this impossibly quick pace?  No sooner have you mastered Word 2010, here comes Word 2013, which is significantly different from its earlier incarnation.  Innovations are being implemented every day, and it seems there is no way to keep up.

How can we help?  Then library staff offers wildly popular computer and device classes, but there are never enough of them.  Stymied by a lack of a dedicated computer lab, we have cobbled together a de facto computer lab in the conference room using eight laptops.  Thanks must certainly go to our patient and brilliant librarians, Veronica Reynolds and Brian Jennings who teach these classes, despite other pressing responsibilities (Head of Community Relations and Local History Librarian, respectively).
