LibrarySupportStaff.com  will be Closed for Remodeling during the Summer of 2012.

 

I hope to re-open in the Fall 2012 with a much leaner look.

 

So many of the links I had on the 100+ web pages were out of date.

 

Trying to maintain the site since I retired in 2005 from my job as a Library Technician, has not been easy.

 

I apologize to my visitors who come here via a google search or through a link listed on other Library related websites.
