Notes from the back room of a small rural library

I am the back room of a small rural library in Colorado. OK I am actually a person, but working in a small (did I mention understaffed) library means my job is all things associated with the back room: cataloging, accounting, book processing, acquisitions, technology, toilet plunging...

Libraries have been quite successful using wish lists to expose their needs. When a community member sees something tangible they can donate, such as a printer or a bookshelf, they often feel motivated to help out. This is not a new idea. At the Rural Library Sustainability Workshop, libraries shared stories of televisions, paint, art supplies, and other commodities community members donated.
