Virginia Johnson, CRRL's Web Content Librarian, has won the following awards in the 2010 Virginia Press Women Communications Contest for these LibraryPoint.org articles:

1st Place: Writing for the Web: Feature Articles
"Marlborough Point: In the Stream of History"
Judge's comments: "This article is appropriate for the audience and is virtually tailored to their needs. Images and bold text highlight information and links lead to sources."

2nd Place: Writing for the Web: Educational or Nonprofit
"The Good Doctor Was a Spy: The Lively Times of Robert Wellford"
Judge's comments: "Impressive research/fascinating story about an important Revolutionary War figure whose influence might easily be ignored or forgotten. Nicely done."

At the CRRL we have known for a long time that we are lucky to have such a talented writer on staff, who can handle emerging technologies with ease and adapt texts to different audiences. Congratulations, Virginia!

Did you read a really good book a few months ago, but can't remember what it was? Or maybe it was a DVD, audiobook, or magazine?

Now you can keep track of the items you borrow with "My Borrowing History," a new optional service from the CRRL.

How does it work? Easy!

Just because you're older doesn't mean you can't have fun while staying in shape. Porter Library's Awesome Seniors Exercise Class meets most every Thursday from 9:30 to 10:30. This free class is for people 55+. Exercises are done with the help of a chair.
