Libraries Out of the Box

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 users.

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!

Dinah Harris
TLA President
