Hello Friends and Colleagues!
Our theme for the coming year will be “Libraries Out of the Box.”
(Thank you, Chantay Collins, for coming up with the wording.) The focus
will be on the things I stated in my “Statement of Professional Concerns.” I would like for us to think about our services and
offerings related to ebooks, mobile technology, and our wi-fi
We also need to analyze and see if our services are relevant to our
patron’s needs. What about our policies and procedures? Are they really
in line with today’s patrons? Are we basing what we offer on our own
convenience or our patrons’ needs? That is something to think about.
At the same time, we want to look at our organization (TLA). We
should ask ourselves the same questions in regards to whether or not the
organization is meeting our needs? What could we change that would add value to your membership?
We will be using the blog to discuss some of these points. Please join the conversation!
