Meetups on the Roadshow

Josh, Lisa and I are excited to be taking part in this roadtrip but it’s going to be hard on us.  For example, we know we are going to be hungry after our long drives and dehydration is always a valid concern while on the road.  In order to keep going we’re going to need to eat and drink every night.  But we don’t want to do it alone!

While a large part of our trip will be taken up by formal meetings and interviews (and driving), we know there are many great librarians, library staff, and LIS students in every city and you’re definitely one of them.  We want you to be a part of the roadshow and talk to us about what you are working on in your library in these less formal and more fun nightly meetups.   So come out after work and meet some other folks who share a passion for your profession, network with people in the same career as you, or maybe just hang out and have a drink with librarians you already know.  This is a great opportunity to come out and join us as we pass through your city for some after work drinks and lively discussion about libraries in your area.
