“Hi All, a quick update for you:
“It was a quiet day at the library, with only a couple of consultations and about 20 walk-up interactions at the front desk. We did a local TV spot to spread the work, and we are also in touch with city and county DSS folks so they know we are here. The emotions on display at the city council meeting last night are evidence of what is still just below the surface.
“Many thanks to Dr. Nancy Miller, who returns home to PA with her therapy dog tomorrow. Nancy was tireless doing assertive outreach all over downtown, including spending most of today with our police department.
“We are open all day tomorrow, and have two clinician openings noon-5, and help at the front desk is needed 9-6. If we are quiet at the library, you can do outreach on the mall, at the park, and at the free speech wall. Just let me know if you are free, or drop by the library.
“Our plan is to discontinue this service after Saturday and hand it off to CAVA and the other organizations offering drop-in services. Let’s hope we don’t need it again anytime soon.”
