Spring is just around the corner, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Who doesn't feel renewed in the springtime air, right?
Last Friday I had the opportunity to gather with some amazing librarians in the East Texas area. What a wonderful day we had discussing the future of school libraries---thinking outside the box, looking at unlimited possibilities and also hearing about some really cool "best practices" in our library world. This was JUST the thing I have been longing for, so it was especially gratifying to be around others doing the same thing.
Of course, we spoke in the context of imagining NO limitations (budget, time, etc.). To me, this is the library world version of a avant-garde fashion show. Once you free your mind to think TOTALLY outside the box, we can pick out the parts that are practical to begin now--while still dreaming of what our future will hold.
I feel more energized than ever---I believe my mojo is officially back! I hope all of you are feeling that, as well.
and to once again share the quote from my Womens History Month lesson (so applicable here, too)...
Never limit yourself because of others' limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.
Mae Jemison, astronaut
