In just the next month or so I have many things that have been in the works for months all finally coming to fruition. So let’s just get started right now.
Back in December I had the pleasure of working with Faith Brautigam, the Director of the Kokomo-Howard County [IN] Public Library when she hired me to run their library’s in service day.
Faith is also a regular contributor to Public Libraries Online and when she asked me to do an interview abut RA service with her, of course I said yes. Faith is committed to including her entire staff in service to their community’s readers, and I am not kidding about the entire staff. There were security, IT, and custodial staff at my training, and I am not exaggerating when I tell you some of them were among the best participants. Saying yes to Faith was a no brainer.
Click here for the first part of what will be a two part piece. I have to give a lot of credit to Faith here. I do a lot of these interviews and her questions were some of the best I have ever had. It is the main reason why we had to break it up into two parts.
While you are reading, I will be working on a piece that will be part of the cover story for the 5/1/17 issue of Library Journal and preparing for a trip to Cedar Rapids [IA] Public Library among about 7 other things happening here on RA for All between now and early May. And that is without considering all of the special content that will be focused around StokerCon [I will have the full details on that later this month].
Hold on to your books, we are going to have a crazy month and you all get to be along for the ride.
