First of all it is so cool to see librarians networking on LinkedIn!
Second, I love the idea of checking people out at the library.
Isn’t there someone you’ve always wanted to talk to? To ask a million questions? I know I had a chance to speak with a homeless patron a few years ago at our Staff Training Day and he opened my eyes to the plight of the homeless (many of them choose to be homeless). I can think of dozens of people I’d like to interview.
