A major effort of participation

I have been lucky enough to be part of this project as an individual librarian. I saw the posting about Infoquest on a listserv and was immediately interested. Thanks to the nature of Participatory Librarianship, Lori Bell allowed me to take part.

I am amazed at the collaboration on this project. There are a large number of libraries involved - all of different purposes and types. Through participation and collaboration, we have managed a solid start on the project. Everyone has an opportunity to have a voice, whether it be in establishing policies and procedures or planning for PR.

I believe that Tom Peters is right in his idea of the "Summer of Mobile Library Services." We plan to launch this project mid summer and look forward to patrons and users of all types benefiting from the effort!
