First SSLLI session

The first meeting for the Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute was last Friday, and I really loved it! We all got together at the Southshore Regional Library in Ruskin, FL. What a beautiful building! All of the students plus our mentors showed up for the first day. We had to get our picture taken, and post them along with some information about us. They asked us to pick our favorite book - As librarians, that is an almost impossible task!

We were greeted and welcomed warmly by… Continue

Tomorrow: Ruskin, FL

Tomorrow is my first ever session of the Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute, and I am really excited! I leave tonight and will be at the Southshore Regional Library tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. Our first session will be basic introductory stuff, but we also are going to have a session based on Enneagrams. I don't know if it is the nerd in me, or if everyone adores this form of self-assessment, but I can't wait! It is always interesting to find out more about what makes you… Continue

I'm in!

I had a meeting with my director and my supervisor this morning, and I am all clear to attend the Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute! I am so excited to begin, and I have to say I am honored. This is because my library decided to send me despite the financially difficult times ahead. They have faith in me which is a wonderful feeling. The first meeting is in November, and I look forward to meeting everyone there. I have to say that there are some pretty spectacular librarians in… Continue

Thank you! Tularosa is a beautiful great little town! We love it! We relocated here for my husband's job in Alamogordo but I fell in love with Tulie and we decided to live here and commute.

Hi Anna,
I saw somewhere (2.0 blog posting) that you might be interested in applying 2.0 in a small or rural library and just wanted to let you know that we started a group to address such things--just fyi! We are doing our recruiting right now... :-)

I remember seeing the group. I hope everything went well; the seats are comfortable in that room but it gets so cold in there.

As for programs we use GoLive and Dreamweaver for editing purposes but as for the code itself, it was mostly complied and written by hand. All of our pages are XHTML and CSS to be more compliant and use Javascript for navigation and a smaller smattering of Ajax.

Hi Anna,
It's been my experience that it depends a lot on the outlook of the staff. This is the second small library in which I've worked, and I've found that change can happen incredibly quickly when embraced...or incredibly slowly when stonewalled! There is a manageability factor that I think greatly aids the small library. I've also found that a volunteer program almost grows of its own accord in a small community, and can be a big help in certain types of forward advances. What do you think?
