First, thank you to everyone who submitted a chapter proposal for the Library Innovation Cookbook. We will be contacting people throughout December. Both Dr. Molaro and I truly appreciate all the time, thought, and work put into every single submission. I wish we could take them all!
Also I had such a blast presenting at the Wauconda Area Library's staff day this past Friday. It was my first time in both the city and the library, and I have to say, it is such a lovely area. The downtown is beautiful with lots of little shops and restaurants, and of course, the library itself is gorgeous! Their patrons must be very proud. And to top it off, the staff at WAL was enthusiastic and hilarious. They were a wonderful crowd.
My presentation was on the intersection between the personal and professional on social media for both library workers and institutions. It is called Libraries, Librarians, and Social Media. You can view it on slideshare here:
If you are interested in having me present on this, or any other topic, at your library, just click on the "Contact Me" link on the left hand side of the page.
Again, thank you to all the librarians who submitted to the book, and have a wonderful holiday!
