Library Corner: Week of Oct. 18

Safety is a very broad topic. It is one of those topics that impacts it isn't surprising that the library has created a Safety Video Guide. In addition to breaking the huge list of safety videos in the library collection into bite-sized chunks, the Guide also shares some recommended websites and videos that are available online.

Take a look and find some resources to share with your students or at a department meeting as a refresher. See a safety topic that the library doesn't have covered? Please let us know! We may not be able to add a video to our physical collection right away, but perhaps we can find something online or from another resource to help.

A dose of laughter

  • Trying to dress an active little one is like trying to thread a sewing machine while it's running.
  • Cleaning your house while your kids are at home is like trying to shovel the driveway during a snowstorm.
  • Kids really brighten a household; they never turn off any lights.
  • An alarm clock is a device for waking people up who don't have small kids.
  • Shouting to make your kids obey is like using the horn to steer your car, and you get about the same results!
  • Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
