Whew. The presentation is over! It went really well, and I’ll post the same links here I did for them. It’s Google Earth in the K-12 Classroom, and there’s all kinds of cool stuff you can do with Google Earth!

Now all I have to do is look pretty for tonight’s fashion show and sound intelligent for tomorrow’s panel about ALA!
I was reminded today that the work I do actually does help people. A man from Waveland Mississippi came in, looking for information about the effects of Hurricane Katrina and whether or not he could go back. Well, I looked on his local news channel’s website and found a Ham radio call sign that he could contact for information…then, we have a Ham radio operator on staff, so we gave him the names of people in the area who could help him….
I’m just glad that the library could help him get the info he wanted and needed….Hopefully his house is okay and his family…
