How a Public Library Got Library 2.0

34398219_d3aef33b96_t.jpgWired Magazine has a fantastic article on how a bunch of library users got together and created Library 2.0

How cool is this? The ‘net has grown to the point that more and more people recognize its value, or more accurately, its total immersion in the lives of everyday people. I particularly like this quote from the article:

Recognizing that librarians need to know how to participate in the new media mix if libraries are to remain relevant, Blowers challenged her 550 staffers to become more web savvy. Using free web tools, she designed the program and gave staff members three months to do 23 things.

You can learn a lot in 15 minutes, which is why I encourage you to check out their website to get a sense of what you can learn in such a few minutes. It’s about discovery, learning something new, and keeping your brain well lubricated with new ideas and concepts.
