Meet Brian: Head of Technology Services
Brian Morey, Head of Technology Services
newest member of the Chelsea District Library family! Brian has joined us as the Head of Technology Services and will be helping us to fully utilize and optimize the technology platforms and programs available here at CDL and much, much more.
Brian moved to the surrounding Chelsea area (Hamburg Township near Pinckney) almost ten years ago from Ann Arbor, and loves the open spaces and outdoor setting of our rural communities. Before coming to CDL, Brian spent a little more than ten years with the City of Ann Arbor as their Architecture Manager, building technology platforms to help serve the citizens of the Ann Arbor area. Prior to joining the City of Ann Arbor, Brian spent five years in the private sector with the software development firm Mechanical Dynamics building out their network infrastructure, and ten years in the education sector with Mathematical Reviews / American Mathematical Society building network services as their Network Manager. Brian has been on the leading edge of technology since the first Macintosh computers came out in the early 1980's and has a passion for delivering on the untapped potential of computing and network resources.
Brian enjoys being outdoors, working in the yard, rock collecting, exploring new areas, spending quality time with his children and keeping up with today's current topics. His passion for reading is in science and technology, and likes reading through newsfeeds and other internet-based articles. For physical publications, Brian likes to read magazines like Discover, Scientific American and Smithsonian. Please welcome Brian to the Chelsea community the next time you are in the library!
The Blue Zones: Wellness Coaching with Elaine Economou
Do you have wonderful, well cared for costumes that don't fit your children, but you're loath to throw away? The library is offering you the chance to let other children use the costumes you purchased or made, in a costume exchange! Anyone in need of a costume can browse the rack any time the library is open. Donated costumes must come with a hanger, and they must be clean and well cared for. All unused costumes will be donated to a local charity on November 1st.
Are You One of the 18 People Needed to Help Save the Book Sale?
The Friends of Chelsea District Library long time Used Book Sale Coordinator, Sharon Pignanelli, is stepping down from her leadership role at the end of 2011. The sale on November 12 of 2011 is the last one she will be coordinating!
Come find out how you can help at the Friends of the Chelsea District Library's informational meetings set for Sunday, October 9 from 2-3 PM and Monday, October 17 from 7-8 PM at the library. Job descriptions will be presented at the meetings so that volunteers can sign up for specific duties. Eighteen people are needed to work with more than 20 others who have already taken on book sale duties to keep the used book sale going. Your attendance at one of the two meetings is critical if the Friends are to continue the book sales in 2012 and beyond.
The book sales are currently the only revenue generating event organized by the non-profit group, the Friends of the Chelsea District Library. The funds they produce play a essential role in enabling many wonderful library programs and funding special library needs. Library funding is continually decreasing and extra revenues from the Friends are needed more now than ever.
Please RSVP your attendance at meeting to Cynthia Silveri, President of the Friends firstname.lastname@example.org
