Early Voting in Chicago

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sun, 2/22/09 (12:18pm)

Made it over to the early voting station at the Lincoln Park Branch of CPL during a break. It's for the Primary to replace Congressman Rahm Emanuel. The last time I had been there was in October for the General Election. Needless to say, the one or two people waiting to vote this time round in no way matched the scores of people all packed in and waiting just a couple of months ago. Instead of close to an hour, it took maybe 5 minutes.


Chicagoland Drupal4Lib BoF (3/20, 1:30p)

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 2/4/09 (10:46am)

I'm pleased to announce a Chicagoland Drupal4Lib BoF on Friday, 3/20 (1:30p-4p) at DePaul's Loop Campus, 1 E. Jackson (10th fl., Rm# 10028), Chicago.


The Chicagoland Drupal4Lib BoF will be an opportunity for librarians to get together and discuss how they use (or would like to use) Drupal in a library context. We'll ask people to present projects they're working on and we'll field questions on problems and approaches to implementing Drupal. All levels of knowledge from expert to n00b are welcome.

Early Voting in Chicago

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 10/25/08 (2:23pm)

So I came up with the brilliant idea of ducking out from work to go to the Early Voting location at the Public Library just across the street.

Bad move. After filling out the form and giving them my ID, I was led into a waiting room with more than 60 people! This is going to take a hundred years. My colleagues at work probably think I skipped out of town.

[Note: the above was written while I was marooned in the waiting room. And yes, I finally got out and was able to resume normal reference services.]


PT Reference Gig at DePaul

Submitted by Leo Klein on Mon, 9/15/08 (9:26pm)

Today was my first day doing reference at DePaul University Library. I grabbed a couple of volumes of the DLB and a volume of the NUC (Pre 1956) and I was in 7th Heaven. It's only a couple hours a week but I love it!
