The Adopt-a-State program introduced in September has been very well-received. Recall that this is the program where people volunteer to keep the books in their adopted state section in the library neat and in order so that researchers will not be denied use of a resource due to miss-shelving. This effort requires a 2-times a month effort on the part of the volunteers, and is a great service.
We have had 15 people respond to this program with the result of 19 states plus Canada being attended to. Our goal is to have each state east of the Mississippi adopted. Here are the "orphan" states that need adoption: WI, RI, CT, TN, AL, IN, DE.
If you have a particular interest in one of those states and wish to get involved, let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
