Tell us a little about your philosophy of libraries and youth services.
One thing that I have noticed when attending conferences, people don’t readily go out of their way to meet new people and introduce new people to their friends. I have felt like a lonely fish swimming in a crowded ocean--and I consider myself to be an outgoing personality. I cannot imagine how lonely a shyer person would feel in the same situation. Somehow we need to identify ourselves more clearly as Youth Services in conference settings and reach out to get to know each other. We are all in this together.
