Creative Librarians Group


This Library 2.0 group is for anyone interested in celebrating creativity in libraries.

Those of us that work in libraries are some of the most interesting, resourceful, intelligent, and talented people on the planet. This will be a place for us to share our unique insights, inspirations, and Aha! moments with kindred spirits.

Much of what allows us to be the wonderful professionals that we are comes from our personal lives, so feel free to think outside the “Library” box when posting in this group. We'll understand that your contributions are somehow - maybe in a totally original way - related to your professional journey.

Please join us.
