CMLE socializes!

CMLE is constantly working to build connections across our system! And our regular social dinner gatherings are a great way to help people meet up and build your networks!

As you can see, we had a great time visiting Old Chicago. Several of us had dessert; we just couldn’t tear ourselves away!

We will have a poll up soon for our next day and location. Be thinking about where you would like to gather in early May! Feel free to add any suggestions in the comments, or email to us.

Save yourself from the Ides of March! Join us!!

The other 10% said, "He had it coming to him."
“Listen to your librarian” also seems like good advice!

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.

Our visits to member libraries will happen monthly; our social dinner gatherings happen approximately every other month. All of these events are flexible; if you need to leave early, we understand and will just be happy to see you!

These gatherings are a chance for all of us to chat about libraries, issues you are facing in your library, and to tell us about great success stories you experience. Being alone in your library, or being the only person who does what you do in your library, can seem rough. We want to give you lots of ways to connect with your community of library people here in CMLE!

We will be delighted to see you at any, or all, of these events no matter what; but if you know in advance that you can attend, please leave an RSVP below. Then we know to expect you! We will send you a reminder email before each event when you sign up below.

Are you joining us? Let’s go eat and talk!

We are getting excited about our second regular social gathering for CMLE library people, and other friends!

Wednesday, March 15
5:30 pm
Old Chicago
4040 2nd St S, St Cloud, MN 56301

This was a common request from our members, to have time away from work, where we can meet people we only see online, to talk with other people who are doing what we do, and to help build bonds across the CMLE system. Whether you are alone in your library, or have lots of other people around, you are part of the CMLE system team!

We had fun last time, and are looking forward to meeting more people – and enjoying some tasty food! 🙂 (I had a calzone last time, and it was great!)

We would love for you to attend! This is going to be casual, everyone paying their own way, and no agenda. The only purpose is to have a regular opportunity for all of us to get together, maybe meet some new people (or people you only know online), and to talk about library stuff. Of course, if photos of kids, pets, or vacations come out to be shared too – absolutely no one will mind!

We will be happy to see you, no matter what. If you can RSVP below, so we have an idea of how many to expect, that will make our planning easier!

Looking forward to hanging out with you!

Ever wanted to get a private, behind-the-scenes tour at the St. Cloud Public Library?

This is your chance! 

On Monday, Feb. 27th at 9am (before the library is even open!) we will gather at the front door and enjoy a tour of the library!

Please let us know if you are going to join us! (RSVP at the bottom of the post – feel free to RSVP for our other events, too!) These events are flexible, so should you need to leave early, we understand.

These visits are a chance for us to get a glimpse into other libraries to learn about the differences and similarities that we all face in the library world!

Please let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you Monday! 🙂
