Ohio Library Council (OLC) has a bunch of chapters, divisions, and committees; I was elected to one of said groups this past spring, and today attended my first meeting. Aside from the fact that I ran into a colleague from my old library--awesome!--I didn't know anyone there, so spent the day with fellow committee members addressing issues and goals for 2014! Our group was a lot of fun and I'm glad I was able to make more professional connections! As a young professional I'm always seeking opportunities to learn more about our profession and I think getting involved at a state-wide leve will be great for that, so for any of you other librarians out there--GET INVOLVED! Find any kind of group that interests you and throw yourself into it passionately. And if one that interests you doesn't exist yet, CREATE IT!
HAPPY WEEKEND! Thank God's it's here!
