TCLC invites all library staff to explore ways you can turn your library into a maker space, a place where library and user interest converge to create ideas, projects or objects – and all on a shoestring budget! See how academic and public libraries are collaborating within their communities. Come learn how to prime your physical space for innovation and creation.
I am delighted to introduce Michael G. Moskow, TCLC’s new Coordinator.
He is now using these and other talents and skills as Coordinator of TCLC.
Michael’s avocations are a reflection of his education and profession. They include recording the recollections of veterans of the Second World War; researching military history (textual and photographic) at the United States National Archives, governmental archival repositories of other nations, and major public libraries – such as the Public Libraries of Philadelphia and New York; and, statistically studying this information. Long an ardent reader, Michael’s literary interests span science, history, theology, classical literature, science fiction, and general fiction. He’s also an avid artistic photographer, and, he likes to ride his bike.
Please join me in welcoming Michael to TCLC.
