Not necessarily serials, but I'd like some input - Cofrin Library has hosted, for years, a party in December for our student workers. It used to be called a Christmas party, then a Holiday party, now we refer to it as an appreciation party. Years ago, professional and classified staff made and brought in a full, hot meal replete with goodies. That metamorphisized into less fuss - desserts, or a cold meal, or we have a committee that makes a few things (sloppy joes, maybe a salad) and we buy chips etc; everyone else brings desserts. The past couple of years the staff has brought cookies, and in addition to serving them, we give the students baggies and give them each a bag to take home. And actually, now we do it twice a year - at the end of each semester.
It's difficult to find the time and the volunteers to do it, and we're looking for input from other libraries. What, if anything, do you do for your student workers? And who does it, and where does the money come from?
Thanks in advance for all responses -
