Library hero

This may seem like the corniest idea in the history of corny ideas, but something about it made everyone smile this week.  So we’re going to institutionalize the corniness.

On Tuesday, Jimmy solved our Adobe Flash issues.  He said,

Just have everyone download Google Chrome, Dr. V!  Mixbook, Animoto and everything else will run.  No problem.

I smiled back and asked Jon (sitting next to Jimmy) to try it and show me if it worked.  It did.  The class  cheered.  Serious backslapping ensued.  Everyone downloaded chrome.

Jimmy became our first library hero. Casey wrote his name on the class schedule board in the front of the library.  Jimmy smiled.

Yesterday, Nick performed a similarly heroic act relating to a hardware fix.  We celebrated his heroism on the board.  All day, folks asked what exactly Nick D. did.  It was fun.

We plan to continue to look for and celebrate our library heroes.
