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

New Collection Unveiled

Created specifically for small and rural libraries.

It began with an observation: every week, we see email messages on listservs asking, “Hey, does anyone have a policy on [topic] they’d be willing to share?” followed by lots of “YES! I’m interested, too!”

An idea took root. CLiC’s Sara Wright and ARSL President Kieran Hixon started fertilizing their plan. What if there could be a central place where policies could be stored, searched and retrieved (but without a lot of complication)? How would it be nurtured and grown? Who would tend to this evolving tree of knowledge?

And the Tech Gnomes at CLiC went to work with their Digital saws and Hexcoded glues and Bit-sized hammers…

A new Public Library Policy Collection web site was grown — a mix of organic matter and online carpentry. The collection is the tree; the interface is the tree house.

We hope you enjoy playing in it.
