Reference Desk at Panera

Via Frances, our SJCPL Staff Devlopment Librarian:

This, my friends, is OUTREACH. This makes the librarian visible..the library visible…and provides a valuable service. I’d ponder this for sure if I was planning outreach services.


“On Saturday, June 4, Daveman will be at Panera Bread in Clay on Route 31 from 8:00 – 10:00 AM. Using their wireless network and my tablet PC, I’ll be answering any and all questions faster than you can spell focaccia. I can show you how to find articles from Consumer Reports and hundreds of other magazines for free. Enter the raffle for a tote bag full of Liverpool Library stuff. You can sign up for a library card, too.

Grab a mug of the Costa Rican and see if you can stump the chump!”
