The award recognizes a librarian who demonstrates an “extraordinary depth of knowledge about books and a distinguished ability to share that knowledge.” This describes Mary to a tee. Mary has been with us since 1996. In 2012, she became our Readers’ Advisory Librarian. In 2014, as part of our Every Reader Every Day campaign she served on the committee that teamed with United Way to provide a copy of Wonder to every sixth grade student in Medina County. She also helped plan more than thirty events at the libraries and helped secure the key note speaker, J.R. Martinez. Mary shares her knowledge of books with our community through articles in local newspapers, a weekly book discussion on Facebook, weekly e-newsletters and much more. She organizes dozens of library-led book clubs, presents book talks to community groups and has been asked to present to staff at regional library events. She is also a huge resource for MCDL staff. She trains on book displays and marketing, hosts a weekly Readers’ Advisory challenge for staff, and visits branches to help refresh the library collection. Mary Olson does so much for MCDL, and amazingly she does it all at only 20 hours a week. We are so proud of her. Olson will receive her award at the ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco this June.

Director’s Notes by Carole Kowell MCDLU We Baby Boomers – many of us retired or semi-retired – have found we have time to pursue activities that we want to do. Recently I started taking a vintage jewelry class at the local university. Why? Because I thought it would be fun and make me an expert on my grandmother’s costume jewelry. And I get my very own loupe! But for folks who want to learn without setting foot inside a classroom, a computer and MCDL library card create a classroom anywhere you want it to be. At MCDL University tuition is free! MCDLU offers a wide curriculum of online classes. Want to learn how to speak French? Take a practice ACT test for giggles. Learn computer skills – beginning to advanced – in online Word, Excel and Mac classes. Track your family’s history in genealogy how-to classes. Take a practice GED test. There’s even a practice driver’s license test. At our libraries this summer are events on gardening (What’s New in the Garden: Plant Trends), the arts (Watercolor Pencil Art), fashion (The Art of Accessorizing), crafts (Glass Fusion: Glass Pendants), and a variety of computer classes. Our university is all about lifelong learning. Enroll today.
