On April 15, 1912 the British luxury liner RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. About 1500 lives were lost in this terrible tragedy that captivated the world in its aftermath. In 1985, the Titanic was discovered "lying upright in two pieces on the ocean floor at a depth of about 4,000 m (about 13,000 feet)." (Britannica). A 1993 expedition enabled salvagers to recover several hundred artifacts from the rusting wreck.

The library has many books and movies that explore, through fiction and non-fiction, the Titanic's voyage and demise. A keyword search in the catalog reveals selections for all age groups. A new book, Titanic's Last Secrets: The Further Adventures of Shadow Divers John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, is on order and looks promising.

Marketing

We were recently interviewed for possible inclusion in a book about word-of-mouth-marketing.  The authors are intrigued with how we market our library services and resources not just to our patrons, but also to our funding organizations, other libraries, and other organizations.  For example, staff have used free software programs to create a video entitled "Who Needs the Public Library?," which you can view on YouTube in our crrlvideo "channel."

Atrium Gallery: Susan Kreig

Digital photographs by Susan Kreig are on exhibit in the Headquarters Atrium Gallery through April.

Artist's Statement:

As a photographer, my two main areas of interest are at different ends of the  movement spectrum- still life and animals. I take still life images because I love the details, and I take animal photographs because I love watching and interacting with animals.
