Staff Day 2008

For the past few years on Columbus Day we close our doors and take a day to celebrate our staff. Nearly 600 staff members attend our staff day at ImaginOn. It’s a great time for us to connect with other staff who we may only see on this one day out of the year.

This year’s keynote speaker was Nancy Pearl who donned a cap bearing our library’s new name and logo.

The highlight of the day, as last year, was the staff band Dewey and the Decibels. Take a look at the links below for some video clips of our band and staff rocking out.

There is such a wealth of talent waiting to be discovered within your own staff!
