Connecting the Dots

Embracing the POWER of being a connected librarian

Being a librarian can be very isolating. We are often the only librarian in the building, if not the district. We belong to everyone, and yet no one. But by embracing the power of social media to connect, we don't have to be alone. Social media allows us to connect, collaborate, celebrate, inspire and empower each other.
