  *   Lawyers in Libraries: Meeting Local Needs at the Jacksonville Public Library:<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/lawyers-in-libraries-jacksonville.html> The Jacksonville Public Library in northeast Florida consists of 21 locations and a library staff ready and willing to connect their community to the resources they need – including support with civil legal issues. In 2014, Lisa Buggs, Coordinator of Lifelong Learning and Community Outreach, saw an opportunity to develop a program to strengthen the library’s ability to support the civil legal needs of their patrons.

  *   WebJunction Launches Supercharged Storytimes for All<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/supercharged-storytimes-for-all-launch.html>: WebJunction is expanding its popular storytimes training and making it widely available in several ways, including an updated free, online self-paced course. This new program is called Supercharged Storytimes for All and is made possible with the financial support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and OCLC.

  *   Columbus Metropolitan Responds to Hunger: Summer Meals and More<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/columbus-metropolitan-responds-to-hunger.html>: As a library looks ahead to its busiest programming schedule of the year, why would it consider becoming a summer meal site? At Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML), staff realized kids were hungry from the time they arrived at 9am until they left at 5pm. During the summer vacation, these kids and their families didn’t have access to the meals they depend on during the school year.
