Please welcome our new summer intern, June Thammasnong.  Originally from California, she has recently graduated from the Simmons MLIS program and will be helping us with circulation, reference, and teaching.  Her favorite thing about being a librarian is connecting people with information resources as well as making connections with people themselves.  Outside of work she likes to hunt for ice cream by bicycle and travel whenever she gets a chance.  Her last big adventure was in New Zealand but lately she’s been discovering the US.  Please give her a warm welcome when you see her around the library.

Please join us in welcoming our new head of Research and Instruction, Becky Morin.  She comes to us from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco where she was head librarian.  A Salem native, she is very excited to be back in Massachusetts and is thrilled to be back home with her beloved Boston Bruins!  When not at work she enjoys distance running, cycling, cooking, and hanging out with her three misfit rescue dogs.  If you see her around the library please feel free to say hello.

We have now changed our borrowing policy so that all reserve items are loaned for 4 hours.  This way you don’t  have to remember multiple times to return both your book and IT item!  This goes into effect immediately.  Overnight rules and all other borrowing procedures remain the same.  Happy Studying!

Happy May Day everyone!  This month is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month and why not spend these longer days out and about.  There are many things to do in Boston like walk the Freedom Trail, go for a bike ride, train for a fun run, or sail along the Charles!  As Boston is “America’s Walking City” there is plenty to explore.  Below are some helpful links to help you get fit!  Perhaps you’ll start today by participating in a Maypole dance!
