National Library Week 2016

For National Library Week I'm dropping in at libraries near my meetings to try transform my work environment. Today I'm working from the Seattle Public Library's Northgate branch, following a morning meeting with the Office of the Education Ombuds.

The Education Ombuds helps families (over a thousand a year) navigate issues in the education system. Like most of WA government they keep careful case records, and publish annual data reports on trends, counts, and needs.

The Northgate branch has a dedicated computer room for mobile workers and students, with power outlets, ample desk space, and free wifi throughout. I plugged in my EV just 2 blocks away at Northgate and settled in for undisturbed work time.
