As Head of Adult Services, I oversee the classes and demonstrations, community outreach (like our homebound delivery), career and technology assistance, and--last but not least--the nonfiction books here at the library. I also run the nonfiction book group, and moonlight as the guy who fixes the printers. I love my job, and I hope to share with you some of the great things I discover about books, movies, music and more.
On the second Wednesday of each month, your friendly Forest Park librarians arrive at the Beacon Pub bearing pencils, paper, a scoresheet, and brains full of trivia. Masters of obscure knowledge gather in teams--The 1912 Titanic Swim Team, Ninja Brains, and so on--to compete in our monthly Pub Quiz. What's a library doing running an event at a bar? Well, who better to put on a trivia competition than librarians? Obscure knowledge is our stock-in-trade, after all.
