Ask a Librarian March Madness Month

Where each day brings a surprising fact, a fun activity, or an Ask a Librarian award … and a chance to brag about our incredible services!

And the Ask a Librarian Award goes to…

Remember those awards in high school, like ‘Best Dressed’ or ‘Most Likely to Succeed’?  Yeah.  Well, this is our ‘Most Likely to Volunteer’ list.  Or, what you could call the ‘Most Likely to Save Us in an Emergency’ list.  But don’t worry… we love you all.  Seriously.


Question:  Which 5 staff are most likely to volunteer to help with unscheduled Ask a Librarian shifts?


Lena Phelps-Ellerker of South Florida Community College

Mindy Rose of Palm Beach County Library System

Susan Weiss of Florida International University

Meredith Semones of University of Central Florida

Jeneice Smith of Florida A&M University

Thank you, team.  We appreciate your help!  Please watch for a secret prize to arrive on your doorsteps in the next few weeks.  It’s not edible, but you could hide M&Ms in it if you’re resourceful…
