Interns Join Us For Summer

Ah yes, Summer has returned and with it come our new Interns from City College. I "stole" them away for a second to get a picture. So here they are on a mild day in June, looking calm and composed. But as Summer BURNS away in Baltimore, our Interns will bear the brunt of work/work/work. Here a task, there a task.

Interview With Rob Wright - New Informationist

Last week I was able to chat with Rob Wright, our new Basic Science Informationist. Rob hails from Houston, and outside of Welch he has an appreciation for Abstract Art. Whenever I interview someone new to the Library, I’m always impressed by the “renaissance person” backgrounds they bring along. Librarianship does seem to attract those with diverse interests.

This past Sunday Carrie Price (new Welch Informationist) and Yours Truly Alonzo (not new at all) went out into the stinkin, stankin heat to Tour 5 or 6 parks in Baltimore City.
