Kirbyville Public Library on Facebook

Check us out on Facebook.  We Librarians 2.0 have to continue to move forward in spite of:

  1. budget cuts
  2. reduction of staff
  3. reduction of hours open to the public
  4. increase in patrons needing extensive assistance with the new eGov dashboard and accessing services like Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps (Lone Star), Child Support, etc.....
  5. the fast pace of technological advances
  6. retaining current patrons and enticing new patrons and the younger audiences who know electronic devices better than paper and ink
Reminds me of Boudreaux and Thibodeaux:
Boudreaux and Thibodeaux went hunting and got lost in the woods.
When Boudreaux began lamenting their fate, Thibodeaux said, "You know, I heard that the best thing to do if you get lost is to fire three shots in the air." So they did that, and waited a while. When no rescue party showed up, they fired three more shots in the air. Finally, when there was still no response, Thibodeaux said, "Well, I guess we better fire three more shots." "OK, if you say so," said Boudreaux. "But somebody better come soon-- we're about out of arrows!"
