Each year, right around late spring and early summer, we hear from a librarian, eager to see her or his library on our map. We relish these communications, energized by the excitement jumping off of our monitors as we read on.
This year’s first email to us was from Sandy Whipple, Adult Services/Outreach Coordinator at Goffstown Public Library in Goffstown, NH. here’s a snippet from her email:
Greetings from New Hampshire. I hope this finds you well, inspired and ready to rock and roll. It’s that time of year when I begin looking just over the horizon past the hazy summer days that bring us to The September Project. Although I am surely not anxious to wish summer away with so little of it to enjoy, I do look forward to planning our project offerings. Before I immerse myself too far, I just need a little reassurance that TSP is alive and well!
Indulge this aging woman, will you? Let me hear from you so I can turn on our “green light”!
Well, we gave her–and everyone else–the green light soon after reading her email (check out her library on our map!). What made Sandy’s email even more fun was that we were on the verge of getting in touch with everyone when we heard from her, which was a perfect nudge to get us moving quickly.
Thanks Sandy, for your inspiration, your participation, and your invigoration. We look forward to seeing what inspired events Goffstown organizes this year!
