|Door No More|
The quiet study room is being transformed into an area with powered seating along the walls where customers can plug in devices like laptops and tablets. The room will house our magazines and newspapers, and will feature comfortable seating where folks can relax and enjoy the latest issue of their favorite periodical. Part of refreshing this space required closing up the second door in the room, which led to the teen collection.

And here's another in our ongoing series of staff profiles - Jane Dorfman.
Jane has been a librarian in Montgomery County Libraries for twenty years and is now head of Children's Services at Davis Library. An avid reader of children's books as well as adult, she takes great pleasure in recommending titles to kids and grownups.
Jane works with Capitol Choices, a group that compiles an annual list of the 100 best books for children and teens. She also answers customer queries through "What Do I Check Out Next?" a MCPL service that brings book suggestions to customer's in-boxes. She does storytimes and leads programs for young people.
When not at the library she is very involved in storytelling for adults and children; she tells at festivals and events, runs the storytelling stage at the Washington Folk Festival and is president of Voices-in-the-Glen, a local guild for tellers. In 2016 she released two CDs. She lives with her family nearby, gardens with some success, and travels when she can.
More to come!
