the future of libraries in the digital age
Good morning, everyone! My name is Patti Linkous, and I am the librarian at Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Virginia. I joined the library world after 17 years as a middle school classroom teacher, having earned my MLIS degree from the University of South Carolina in 2009. It was definitely the right call for me! My very favorite thing is when one of the cadets comes in and tells me his teacher sent him to get a book but he hates to read. I take that as a personal challenge, and have helped shepherd many to the peace and quiet of a good book that changes their perceptions of reading for pleasure. I'm joining the Library 2.0 group to try to stay current with changes in library-land.
