It has been quite the day. I’ve enjoyed an opportunity to discuss a great many things that I’ve been thinking about, with other library professionals. The day started not long after I got up, and really went all day for the past twelve hours. We did take some breaks, enjoyed some meals, but even then it was mostly a conversation between library folk about libraries. I joked at dinner that it’d be fun to record the conversation and share it on YouTube. It was suggested, in response, that such a recording would not encourage people to join the profession. I don’t know about that, but then I’m biased. I think libraries do great things and have tremendous opportunities to make exciting changes going forward.
In any case, it’s getting late. Tomorrow we go back for more, and then straight from there to the airport and back home. I won’t get back until late tomorrow night, so I’m going to leave this short.
