v e v DIRECTOR’S UPDATE: Winter/Spring 2018 20 20 VISION Sandusky Library ushers in a new year with 2020 Vision. The Library will focus on a different topic each month and offer programs aligned with a theme. Topics explored this year will include healthy living and financial literacy, African American history and Women’s Suffrage. Join us as we sharpen our focus on important topics throughout the year. The Library will bring another museum quality exhibit to the community to start the year. We are pleased to host the traveling exhibit Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, January 20-February 29, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Black History Month. This exhibit, created by the New York Historical Society, explores the struggle for citizenship and racial equality in the half century following the Civil War. The Library will serve as a critical partner for the 2020 Census. We will host computer sessions and offer help for accessing the Census survey online, which is possible for the first time in history. Watch for a Census postcard with your participation code on it to be mailed prior to National Census Day, April 1, 2020. This unique code is essential to complete the survey. We can guide you. We invite you to “Find Your Place at the Library” during National Library Week, April 19-25, 2020, and celebrate this theme throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you here! Molly Carver Executive Director MEET OUR NEW ASSISTANT DIRECTOR: I am excited and honored to be a part of the Sandusky Library team as the new assistant director. I have worked in public libraries for the past 13 years as a circulation assistant, youth services librarian, and a branch manager. I earned my library degree from the University of South Carolina. When I moved to Ohio from the South, everyone asked me if I was okay with snow. Growing up in Pennsylvania ensures that snow is not a problem; however, no one told me about mayflies and their arrival each summer. Thankfully I have gotten used to them and love living near Lake Erie. I love working in public libraries because of the opportunity to connect people with information whether in the form of a book, a community resource, or a program. I look forward to serving the community of Sandusky and the surrounding area. Census 101 Workshop for Volunteers Thursday, January 23, at 10:30 a.m. Chris Zess, Partnership Specialist, presenter We invite you to be a Winter/Spring 2020 Volume 28, Issue 1 Volume 26, Issue 1 Census Ambassador! Everyone in Erie County plays an essential role to ensure our community has a full and accurate count in the 2020 Census. Filling out this single survey will impact our community for the next decade. For the first time we will be able to respond online, as well as by phone or by mail. Erie County will need “ambassadors” to help answer basic questions and provide a little help on the computer at places like libraries and senior centers. Come learn about the 2020 Census and how everyone can volunteer a few hours of time to help shape our community’s future! Jennifer Buch Assistant Director We regret that AARP will not be offering tax assistance at the Library in 2020. We know this has been an important service in recent years. The Library will provide information about any agencies offering free tax preparation assistance when it becomes available. Please visit our website or ask at any service desk for any updates.
