Raise a Hand, Folks

I was surprised by the number of people who attended the 2011 LTAIG AGM October 21. Having been absent from the scene for over a year, I had no idea what to expect, especially given it was a Friday night. My worries were unfounded: we had nearly a full house. That’s some dedication! And a testament to the hard work the LTAIG crew has given over the past year.

Twitter, Facebook, Linked-in, a blog, LTAIG is working hard to get its presence known. Why? Because presence shows we are serious. It means LTAIG wants you to pay attention. To changes in library developments, to technology, to jobs, to get you involved. To spark your interest, make connections. The library world is a small world and the more involved you are, the more you will have to say. The more you will care about what is going on around you.

So why not start with LTAIG? One thing I noticed at the meeting was the hesitancy for people to get involved. To commit themselves. You need not be an expert at anything, just have an interest.  One thing is for sure, LTAIG committee members wear many different hats, and they are more than happy to share them. And they are more than happy to lend a hand- and have fun while they are at it. So why not give it a try? Challenge yourself. Help LTAIG out and learn a new skill. Beef up your resume. Become involved. Care.

      Awesome! That’s what I like to hear. Hopefully those hesitating to volunteer will realize how valuable and satisfying it is to do so (and fun!).

  3. As a former LTAIG Committee member, I am just thrilled to see the group so vibrant and active. You are obviously working really hard at it, and it’s paying off. All the very best!
