Newsy Notes (from Facebook & Our Latest News)
What's on his mind? He's thinking "how does the Welch Library find all these great articles?" (FYI---We have a crackerjack team of great-article-finders)  
The items below drew a crowd from some of our Facebook and Latest News followers. 
1) Johns Hopkins University President Ron Daniels cuts a MEAN Masti Dance Rug.
2) What's your first memory of going to the Library? A nostalgic remembrance from National Library Week. (from our blog, re-posted to Facebook)
4) Digital Natives (this is you n' me folks) learn to manage their online reputations.
6) In the "battle royale" between Google, Libraries and Discovery Tools --- who wins?
Our New Library Director
One more word before we leave---- you may know by now that we have a new Library Director, Anne Seymour. Anne's hard at work doing a thousand things at once. But, if you were curious about her background or what's she been up to or where she hails from --- here's the official scoop. Our new Director has hit the ground running and we're excited to have her.  
That's all for April. If you have any questions, inquiries or suggestions feel free to send them my way. Let's hope May brings ice cream days and breezy nights.
