Spring means library conferences, and in particular for Plymouth Rocket it means upcoming trips to Denver, Long Island, Atlantic City, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and maybe someplace else.
Not hardly sure. Denver is exciting mostly because it’s PLA, and consequently a very big deal. Stop by to pick up a newly redesigned ruler, ok?
In a couple of weeks Plymouth Rocket will be off to visit Toronto and the Ontario Library Association Super Conference. We’re excited, as this trip is our first to a Canadian library conference.
We hear great things about Toronto!
We just returned from NYLA at Niagara Falls. Great show.
The take away? Public libraries are focused on content that can be shared on mobile devices of all kinds; content that is simple to push out, easily edited, and focused on the needs of patrons and customers.
Off next to Chicago, Portland ME, and Seven Springs, PA.
Plymouth Rocket, Inc. on the road; Ric headed to Newport RI for RILA, and Jim to Atlantic City for NJLA and on up to Long Island for a library fund raising event. Hope we have enough rulers!
Prison Book Program of Quincy, MA provides a life line of literature to people incarcerated across the United States. Locating paperbacks in good enough condition to pass muster is not always easy; a couple of weeks ago, we were fortunate enough to get in on the tail-end of the annual book sale at the Ventress Memorial Library of Marshfield MA.
Six boxes of good books and one trip to Quincy later, the program was able to partially re-stock its shelves, and continue its good work of sending books into prisons.
Prison Book is not unique to Quincy, so check in your area for similar opportunities.
We just completed attending the Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Long Island library conferences. Always great meeting up with current subscribers and folks interested in our software. Thanks to all of the organizers and conference committees for managing three very successful gatherings.
