Tapping Your Team Talents:  Elizabeth Koenig and the team at Everett Public Library are passionate about bringing fun, creative programming to their community. Many of their best ideas come from tapping into their own team’s special talents and hobbies. We asked Elizabeth and her team to tell us how they do it—and how sharing their personal skills with their community has made this team feel even more excited and connected to their work at the library. We hope it sparks creative ideas for you and your team!

Not Just Deodorant: Teen Hygiene Health Center at the Rockwood Makerspace: Judith Guzman-Montes, Bilingual Makerspace Library Assistant, at the Multnomah County Library in Portland, Oregon, created a Teen Hygiene Health Center in the restroom of the Rockwood makerspace to serve the needs of teens visiting the library. Judith shares how they are using a simple shoe or pocket organizer in the restroom to provide health and hygiene items, and provide pamphlets with information on related services.
