What’s the big thing that happened this week?  Newsishness? Hurricane? Library news?

Happy New Year! Professional Resolutions:
Emily is going to start her second masters and get the projector loans started.
Addie is going to redo her library’s website... and continue to learn the names of her 500+ students.
