Carol Seufert moving on

Carol Seufert, Assistant Director of Bucks Online, Faculty Support is leaving her position for a new opportunity as Coordinator, Online Learning at the Community College of Philadelphia. Carol is well known and much loved in the Bucks community. Having worked at Bucks since February 1991, she has become an intricate part of many lives. Those that know Carol are touched by her overwhelming kindness and concern for others. Most recently, Carol began an initiative with Shawn Wild to bring virtual reality learning to Bucks. Through their work, students have been able to experience this new learning technology that few other institutions offer. We congratulate Carol on this exciting move and wish her continued success!

The Library is planning a dynamic, open-mic-style Writers Reading with cake for Wednesday, March 28, at 3:00 in the Library.

Everyone is invited to attend and need not RSVP. Tell your friends. If you would like to read, please send margaret.montet@bucks.edu a quick note and tell me your birthday month.

Stitch-In at Noon on Wednesdays!

Join us for a Stitch-In! A mindful session of knitting, crochet, counted cross stitch, quilting, or other handwork will take place in the library on Wednesdays at noon by the main entrance. 
Stitching and handwork is known to lower blood pressure and create a state of mindfulness by requiring one to be very present. According to Dr Marlies Alvarenga, director of the Monash Clinical Psychology Centre at Monash University, embroidery is known as logic relaxation. Forming and following patterns requires a certain logic to the practice. “Knitting allows for the passive release of stray thoughts.” Come to the library to improve your focus, clear your mind, and increase your creativity.
Bring your own personal project or use one of ours. All skill levels are welcome. Join us for as long as you are able between Noon and 1pm. 
All are welcome to this free event sponsored by the Library and the Faculty Center.
