Also met Ry Cooder and his family, they are friends of my son
Love those shirts! I still live in mine!
I send out an email every monday to each of my staff checking in with any work related items and what we are doing at home. BUT the best part is the fun little 'get to know you' questions I add at the bottom
I'm sure they appreciated you calling them all
Re: the phone calls-- really awesome. I'm sure you're busy as heck dealing with everything going on, so it's so nice that you are making the time to reach out to everyone.
Also thanks for finding ways we can help other city departments
hi cat! hahahaha
What do you think will happen with hiring in 2020? (your system and others in California).
I like that your co-worker wants to get involved with this meeting!
Have you considered what to do about the items that are currently checked out? Are you planning on accepting returns?
That’s hopeful. Thanks for your thoughts on hiring.
Thanks for sharing this with your cat.
Did you see yourself as a leader when you got into the profession?
OMG Michelle. I too just finished watching Downton Abbey for the first time.
Those are beautiful cupcakes
There is a great “news” program on Youtube called “Some Good News” by John Krazinski from The Office and Jack Ryan fame. Love this show and recommend it. Celebrity guest stars are off the charts!
Favorite travel guide?
Yes, Stefanie! love the SGN!!
SGN is awesome :-)

80s music is great
'80's music is the best!
I just want to say your cat looks really sweet and lovely.
I wish we, the attendees, had a POV of your cat eating the bacon cupcake!
worth it to see the kitty
how important were the professional associations like the CLA and ALA to your professional growth?
scheduling is tough.
Michelle, how do you recommend getting supervisory experience, especially if one's current job position doesn't involve managing employees?
how important is a LT degree compared to maybe experience and a LT certificate when looking at someone to hire?
Do you have advice, for balancing productivity and personal mental well being in this stressful time?
How do people demonstrate leadership during this time?
When we open, how will class visits work? Will we have them come back?
Are you going to interview any directors from the rural north state, like Chris Veach (Lake County), Todd Deck (Tehama County), Nick Wilczek (Humboldt County), etc.?
It's been a great lineup so far
LT is well worth it, and prepares you better for getting an MLS.
I love Pasadena! I miss going to the downtown and paseo area.
I think it is great that you have reached out to your employees, they will always remember that! Thank you for all of your insight today and taking the time to do this. Your cat is adorable, and I am all about the love and comfort from these special animals!
Thank you all, but thank you Michelle, I enjoy your talks, info, and advice so much!!
