National Library Week 2013: HSLI is YOUR Community

Communities Matter is the theme for National Library Week 2013, and I want to thank all HSLI members for being part of our Illinois library community. As a community, we are stronger than as individuals. As a community, we support each other, celebrate the good times, and offer support in the hard times. As a thriving and active community, we can learn and prosper.

Communication is key in any community, and I want you all to share your news with our HSLI Newsletter. If you have changed positions, have new duties, or want to share news about a new project, please send a note to our newsletter editors Beth Robb and Joyce Pallinger so that they can post your story to the Newsletter. To our members that are planning to retiring or leaving the area, please share the news with our HSLI community know so that we can extend our good wishes to you.

If you have a problem or question, the HSLI listserv always available to connect you with help. I am proud of the wide range of experience and talent represented in our HSLI membership, and connecting with our shared wealth of knowledge though the listserv is an important benefit of belonging to the HSLI community. Although many of us work in single person libraries, you are not alone–you have a strong community of colleagues ready to offer support.

Thank you all for being a members of the HSLI community, and I wish you all a very happy National Library Week.
