Want to hang out with CMLE members?

At CMLE Headquarters, our mission is to serve our members. One of the biggest issues our members have talked about with us is the problem of being alone in their libraries, or feeling unconnected from the work other library people are doing.

We are on the job for you!

We have a variety of opportunities for all of us to gather in person to chat about libraries (or other topics – we are fascinating people after all!), and to visit libraries.

Group Visits to CMLE Libraries: Let’s Go!

OpenLibraryLogoIf you are reading this, you are almost certainly a library fan. And of course, you would be entirely correct to be so – libraries are fantastic!!

At CMLE, we feel we have both lovely libraries and wonderful library people. As we seem to all agree on this across our system – it would be great to visit each other and to have the chance to admire each other’s libraries!

We are organizing monthly trips to libraries across the system, so we can all have a chance to visit libraries that are new to us, different types, and approach the same challenges in maybe a new way. Plus, going as a group gives people the chance to meet up in person! (We are not restricting this to just CMLE members; if you are reading this, you are invited!)

Vote! Let’s have another social event!

The first one was so fun, we are already looking forward to the next one!

Members have requested that we move this around, to be sure everyone gets a chance to easily attend and enjoy dinner together. So we are setting up a vote, to let people give their ideas on a place you would like to visit for our March gathering. This will be the week of March 13, maybe Wednesday night (depending on the reservations available).

We have picked out a few places, all with good Yelp ratings and comments. Vote for the one that sounds tastiest to you, or that you have been meaning to try, or that you already love, or just sounds like a fun place to chat with your colleagues! (In some  smaller places, now and in the future, we might have to spread our group out. No problem for us! We can have fun chatting in smaller groups, and get to know each other in person as well as online!)

And if you have other thoughts, share them in the comment section, add them to the contact form, or email them to us at Headquarters.

Food and Fun: A Good time was had by all!

Dateline: Monday, Jan 30, 2017

Place: Old Chicago restaurant, St Cloud

Purpose: CMLE members gathering for food, fun, and library talk

Verdict: Complete success!!

Yes indeed, we had a good time at the first in a series of CMLE gatherings! One of the most frequent member requests is for more opportunities to gather together informally, to share ideas, ask questions, and just have time to talk together.  And this happy group was the result!
