During our recent Koha Task Force meeting, Children's Librarian Heather Cousin came up with the idea of having our patrons name our OPAC. This idea was quickly approved by other members of the Task Force. We hope that this will bring excitement and attention to our new catalog.
Entry forms will be available at any of our public service desks and on the Arcadia Public Library's website. These entry forms can be turned in to the "Suggestions" box at the Front Desk or from the form online. Posters, press releases, and special mention of this contest will be publicized throughout the community.
Each contestant needs to have a valid Arcadia Public Library Card (with the number written on the form,) to be eligible. Patrons can enter as many times as they like. The deadline for submission is Tuesday, November 16, 2010. The winning entry will be chosen by the Arcadia Public Library Board of Trustees at their monthly meeting on Thursday, November 18. Besides the honor of naming our catalog, the winner will also receive a cool, special prize.
The winner will be announced on Monday, December 13, 2010, our Koha "go live" date!
