Keith Richards... Please Have Sympathy for America's Public Libraries

Good job Shiela Redcay from the Matthews Library in Fredericksburg PA. She's doing everything she can to get Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards to come and visit her library. She got the idea after reading a preview of his autobiography, Life, in which he mentions his thoughts at one time of becoming a librarian.

Join her Facebook Group to support the cause and take a shot at winning a $50 gift to Amazon in this video contest:

ALA Learning Wiki

For anyone who is involved with training in libraries, you don't want to miss the new ALA Learning Wiki! The wiki is just starting up, so go over and contribute what you've already done and see if there is information on there that could help you in a current project. I'm anxious to see what gets added to the Needs Analysis page in the Managing Training - Best Practices area as I'm currently developing one of these for my System. Read more about this great new resource here.
