Webtastic Wednesday: High-Five a Librarian Day!

The Tyler librarians couldn't resist celebrating High-Five a Librarian Day, today, November 18, 2015.  If you are stopping by the Chester or Midlothian campus library, high-five your librarian to show your appreciation for all the services and resources available from your Tyler libraries.  If you would rather give a nod of the head, hand shake, or a kind word of appreciation, that is perfectly acceptable too!
