CMLE Members Gather!

You can tell from the slightly blurry photo that we were all having fun! Of course, you probably already knew that – any time you get a group of CMLE members together to hang out and talk libraries, it’s going to be a good time!!

This was another member social event, and you can see that not only did we have nice food we also had great company! Members have requested a way to get together and chat about unstructured stuff, and to just have the chance to put names to faces.  And we always enjoy hanging out with members, hearing more about their work, and discovering all the great things going on around the system!

Part of the value in belonging to a multitype system is the chance to chat with all kinds of people who do what you do, in different locations. (Note: EVERYONE in our geographic area belongs! We love all of your libraries!!) Speaking as someone who has worked in and with a bunch of different libraries, of all types, I can tell you: Libraries all do the same kind of work. We provide information, we help our community members get information they need, and we are all pretty amazing about it!

Okay, yes: I’m biased. But libraries are excellent!! And having the chance to chat with library people, and to find out all the neat things they are doing, is just so fun!

Stay tuned for our next member social event!! We want to talk with you, and to hear all about your library!

Tomorrow: Join us for dinner and exciting library discussion!

It’s Summer Time – Let’s Hang Out!

Summer FlowersAh, summer! We all live for the relaxing, slower pace of the hot weather. (Okay, fewer mosquitoes would be good; but that’s a small quibble!)

And eventually everyone gets tired of hanging out, and wishes for some good library discussion. We are here to help with that!

We really enjoyed having our social events in the winter and spring; and are looking forward to hearing from you guys about your summer work, any plans you are making for upcoming programs, and any other interesting library things you want to share! (And it’s ALL interesting when it comes to library stuff!!)

So let’s set up some times and places we can meet up to talk. Vote below for some general days and times that will work out for you. We anticipate setting up multiple events, at different times and places, so everyone who wants to do so can come visit, chat, and have some unstructured time to hang out with your library colleagues from across the system! (It’s possible that I’m just biased; but I think we have the most interesting discussions and people! Come check it out for yourself!)

We are putting together plans for a September “Welcome To Fall” event; so feel free to share any ideas you might have for that. More details will be available as we get closer to September.

Now go enjoy yourself, listen to some back episodes of our “Linking Our Libraries” podcast, and follow along with our Summer Fun Library Tour posts each day to get a quick, fun library story!
