We might be a little biased, but we think that our Regional Library is offering tons of great resources and events throughout Jackson, Macon, and Swain counties. We thought a blog would be a novel idea to help get the word out, and we’d love your feedback, too! You might notice a change in our name and appearance; we thought the old look was a little stale, so we had a staff contest to rename our blog. There were more than 78 entries in the Name that Blog Contest. Our Buddies, Our Shelves was submitted by Hudson Library staffer Karen Hawk. Judges chose this name because of the clever pun on the classic book title from the 1970’s and it reflects the purpose of our blog – it’s written by library staff about things we’re personally interested in and want to share with our readers (our buddies!). FRL’s blog highlights things available in the library and introduces people to materials and services they might not know about (our shelves!).
