Phones are Down

Don’t remember what a busy signal sounds like? Call the CLiC office and you can feel the nostalgia of listening to a busy signal.

We always love to hear from you; however, the past few days it appears our phone system doesn’t agree. ☹

CLiC’s phones are currently down. While you may not be able to hear our voices, we are still here for you through the written word.

Please email us with anything we can assist you with.

CLiC is Closed – Oct 23

Source: https://flic.kr/p/9o1qdM

A friendly heads up that the CLiC office will be closed Tuesday, October 23, for a Staff Summit. The last time our organization closed on a weekday for a staff in-service event was more than six years ago, so we hope you’ll forgive the temporary disconnect from you, the libraries we serve.

CLiC always strives to help libraries achieve greatness in their communities. On occasion, we need to step away from our desks and strategize on CLiC’s role in the library community and discuss what the future may hold. This is that time for us.

Thank you for your understanding and patience! We’ve tried to train up some of our four-legged friends to fill in for us, but they keep taking naps.

-Jim Duncan, Executive Director
