We enjoyed watching the Channel 40 news report, which aired in the 5-5:30pm news show February 22. Laurie did a fine job of reporting on our project.
Kathleen on TV!
Channel 40 focused well on MedlinePlus. In the following shots, they zoomed in on the "Espanol" button and then showed a page in Spanish.

While we were in the Reference room downstairs, programs for children were scheduled upstairs. This is a display set up by the Fire Dept. as part of Prevention Week @ Your Library.
Also upstairs: the office of financial manager Luisa Neves-Jarrett, Holyoke Public Library Corporation. She has been very helpful in processing invoices for our NLM-funded health library project.
