This has to been one of the best assignments I have ever worked on! The expression and inspiration from this class is amazing. I love the sharing, knowledge, and power that I have gained in this class. As I looked over the last semester’s blogs I realized that I have always loved libraries and reading. It has been instilled in me from a very young age especially coming from a small community surrounded by family. When I moved across the country I nearly lost that link…I forgot how much community and reading had always meant to me. Thankfully, I found my roots again and I have pursued my passion. In doing so, I have regained that sense of community and learned so much in the process. This class has shown me that libraries will be forever changing, but I am thrilled to be a part of that process. In fact, this class has even helped me to see a future I never even considered before. This class went internationally and I hope that some day when my kids are grown and I am seeking a new path, I will find the courage to spread library love to nations that do not have access to libraries. Thank you for all of the inspiration and foresight on where libraries can and should start progressing towards.
