Lesley Zavediuk: (13:16) I would imagine with all of the events going on during Summer Reading, LEAP will be helpful! Do some of you do checkouts on a tablet when the circ desk is wild?
Sandy West - Rend Lake College: (13:16) Any other libraries doing inventory? Just finished this morning. So far not too many missing items.
Esther Curry--C.E. Brehm Memorial PLD: (13:16) Here's a list of the iREAD themes: https://www.ireadprogram.org/about. They do re-invent themes a few times.
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:24) It's a quiet group today. Any questions or issues you would like to discuss?
Esther Curry--C.E. Brehm Memorial PLD: (13:27) I'm glad to see the numbers of titles for 3M starting to reflect the "new" titles from So. IL Libraries on the Go!
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:28) Yes! Trying to feature some of that content in the app so your patrons can find it!
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:30) We're up to 25,000+ items with a few thousand more set to come in soon. :)
Darlene Barlow at firstname.lastname@example.org: (13:34) We are doing "Read For the Win" also, but doing an olympic aspect to it with various sports events throughout the weeks that we meet with the children. Our first day is a "Bicycle Safety Rodeo" event with a safety check on bikes then an obsticle course to ride through with rewards at the end! Should be fun!
Joe DeVillez: (13:36) bicycle obstacle course does sound fun
Kay Burrous South Macon: (13:36) We just received Sidney Community Library's bin. What do we do? We open at 1:30 today.
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:38) Hi Kay! Which hub do you receive delivery from? Is it Champaign?
Kay Burrous South Macon: (13:38) Yes.
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:39) I'd give Chris Janvrin a call, he's at ext. 718. (217-352-0047).
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:39) He's the Operations Manager in Champaign.
Shawn- Elwood Township: (13:42) We are doing our own theme for SRP. Whatever we can afford and what supplies we have left over.
Darlene Barlow at email@example.com: (13:42) Who would I get in touch with if I have some books that have been donated to us and I found the book in Polaris but there is not what I need like a paperback ISBN or a Doubleday Publ. name added and I don't know how to do this.
Kay Burrous South Macon: (13:43) Thanks. I left him a message. Our delivery people are really good, I have never had this happen before.
Joe DeVillez: (13:43) One of the catalogers would be able to help you. I would start with Joan Bauer and she might give you a more direct source.
Joe DeVillez: (13:44) Joan's # is (217) 352-0047 ext. 721
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:44) Joan can be reached at: 217-352-0047 ext. 721 You could also try Edie Elliot at ext. 445.
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:44) Looks like Joe and I were racing!
Darlene Barlow at firstname.lastname@example.org: (13:46) Thanks so much for your help!
Lesley Zavediuk: (13:49) Looks like we've got about 10 minutes left. Any other questions for the good of the order?
Nick Bennyhoff: (13:52) Darlene, for the book to match, it has to have the same publisher. ISBN doesn't have to match if everything else does. If there isn't a record with the same publisher in Polaris, a record will need to be brought in from OCLC.
Darlene Barlow at email@example.com: (13:53) Thank You!
Joe DeVillez: (14:00) That's the time. Have a good afternoon everyone!
Lesley Zavediuk: (14:00) Well - it looks like that's all for today. Have a fabulous afternoon and we'll see you next time.
Mary @ Hayner: (14:00) Thanks
