On Saturday, June 4, Daveman will be at Panera Bread in Clay on Route 31 from 8:00 - 10:00 AM. Using their wireless network and my tablet PC, I'll be answering any and all questions faster than you can spell focaccia. I can show you how to find articles from Consumer Reports and hundreds of other magazines for free. Enter the raffle for a tote bag full of Liverpool Library stuff. You can sign up for a library card, too.

Grab a mug of the Costa Rican and see if you can stump the chump!

We here at Fayetteville are quite impressed. Several librarians have offered to man a post at Starbucks and Freedom of Espresso. But, seriously, how did it go and where do you think this will lead? I'll admit it I'm a little jealous but keep up the great work!!! Does Heid's have wireless - that's my favorite. Maija McLaughlin

Daveman replies, Thanks for your kind comments. We've done this 3 times and had different experiences each time. Last weekend I answered more reference questions than in the other two sessions combined, but we didn't sign up anyone for library cards. Last month we ran out of library card applications and I only answered a few questions. The traffic was much lighter last weekend, too. Maybe summer is not a good time for this. For the future, we're looking at other wireless locations in our area, such as Barnes and Noble. We'd love to do Starbucks in Liverpool but they don't have wireless.
