Monday Funday: A morning at Martin Library with YDR Books Editor Sarah Chain

NOTE TO SELF: Pick up books. We are, at the library, after all.

Last week, I planned to visit Martin Library in York with York Daily Record/Sunday News books editor Sarah Chain.

We decided to promote the visit as a meet-up/office hours/please-come-talk-to-us event in the Sunday News, ydr.com and social media channels.

Deb Sullivan, York County Libraries community relations director, even put our visit on the calendar.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., we parked our carcasses on the second floor of the downtown building.

Early on, we had a visitor who drove from Spring Grove to recommend a local author for Sarah, who puts together the books page.

BOOM.

Instastory.

We had one more visitor who stopped by to chat after that.

Sure, we didn’t have a line of people waiting for us.

But that, again, is not the point.

In the downtime, we got work done.

Around 12:30 p.m., information services librarian Laura O’Grady and director of operations Brian Grimm  took us on a tour of “unseen” parts of the library.

Read about that here.

I hope Sarah found value in getting outside her cube.

Now, I just need to find some other people to drag along on ideaLab shenanigans.

Any takers?

I can’t read Spanish, but I bet this sign in our mobile “office” said, “These girls rock!”
