Librarians in the wild
Tonight I am scheduled to give an introduction to Web 2.0 to the Tamworth Library Friends group. Tamworth has been so good to me, giving me a chance to test Scriblio, so I was excited to talk to them. I didn’t even know it was open to the public until my phone rang this morning. The local radio station – WMWV got wind of it and interviewed me on the spot. He knew that the presentation would be a mother-daughter act, but little else. I gave an abbreviated introduction to Web 2.0 and the opportunities it provides our rural communities as far as exposing their unique contributions to a wider public. And I got a chance to point out that libraries are about librarians and librarians provide a context that others can’t touch. If you happen to be within range – story at noon.
Gosh, I love my job.
