Press ReleaseIowa City Public Library Closed Friday, Dec. 13

The Iowa City Public Library will be closed Friday, Dec. 13, for Staff InService Day. pencil

“The annual InService Day is an opportunity for all Library staff to attend training that, ultimately, will improve services for patrons,” says Kara Logsden, the Library’s community and access services coordinator.

The day begins with staff recognition, where 21 Library employees will receive service awards. Library employees are recognized for every five years of service. This year, the Library will recognize individuals who have worked at the Library for five, 10, 15, 25, 30, 35, and 40 years.

Training will continue with a presentation from this year’s keynote speaker: Kendra Morgan. Morgan is a Senior Program Manager at WebJunction, a division of the Online Computer Library Center, Inc., that specializes in providing training for libraries and library staff. She will focus on how to meet changing community needs.

Staff will break into small group sessions in the afternoon for additional training, then reconvene for final comments from Morgan.

“The Library staff appreciates the opportunity for a day of training and we know it will benefit Library patrons in the long run,” Logsden says.

Regular Library hours will resume on Saturday, Dec. 14.
