My name is Peter Cook and I am the new Information Systems Librarian for the Falmouth, North Falmouth and East Falmouth libraries. It has been a whirlwind during my first few weeks as I get to know the staff and computer systems that run this wonderful library.
I am no stranger to libraries. I started going to the library at age 7 and now we take our children to the libraries here in Falmouth and elsewhere on the Cape. I have been a computer consultant for the last three years with The West Falmouth Library and an associate professor of computer science at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before we moved to Falmouth. When not at the library I volunteer as the technical director for The Falmouth Theatre Guild at the Highfield Theater in Falmouth.
I am looking forward to meeting all the patrons to the library and helping you with your technology needs and questions. I am also looking forward to the new technologies that are coming to the Falmouth Library and I will endeavor to stay current with the tools you use to search for information.
I enjoy the fact that the Falmouth Library is so centrally located in the community. At lunch I find myself taking walks and sometimes just sitting and reading on the benches in front of the library. Hope to see you at the library!
