I am Ferguson Public Library Director in Ferguson, MO. AMA!
The Ferguson Municipal Public Library has been doing a lot of programming for the people of Ferguson, and hosting other orgs that needed space to do thier work. I've been director since July 1. We do everything we can for the people of Ferguson.
I'm married with 4 kids, ranging in ages from 11 to 8 months. I'm pretty geeky, and into TTRPGs.
Ask me anything!
Will start answering around 2pm, central time, presuming any questions are here.

Libraries are chronically underfunded, so we learn to make the absolute most of every dollar we get. I urge you to go to your local public library and give them a donation or volunteer some time.
If you want to help Ferguson Library: 1) Donate via paypal at our ("delightfully retro") website, www.ferguson.lib.mo.us using the gold button on the upper right. 2) Donate via bitcoin at https://bitpay.com/867847/donate 3) Volunteer or donate by snailmail at 35 N. Florissant Rd, Ferguson, MO 63135
CODA: Thank you everyone! It has been really great. But, after 3.5 hours, my brain is mush and my hand hurts. I might come back later and look at some more, read some responses, but I'm done for now. Thank you again!
Support your local library!
CODA CODA: Did a couple more rounds of answers, but now I think I really am done for the day. It's 12:15am, and I need to get on with other things. Support your local library! (yawn)
