Help! I’m a new outreach librarian!

Editor's Notes

  1. Images that come to mind with outreach…Dinner Party, School, Book club, distribution, laughing friends. Also, storm-tossed waves, forest w/o a map, new language
  2. Sometimes outreach can feel like being in a ship in the storm
  3. I hope that our time together reassures you of the life preservers around you
  4. Sometimes participating in outreach seems like a forest without a trail. I feel lost, not sure where to go, how to get there, who is with me, etc.
  5. Hopefully our time together will give you some directions and tools to use when you feel lost
  6. Sometimes outreach seems like you are in a different country - with different customs, people, languages, etc
  7. I hope this time together will remind you that there are guidebooks out there, and there are ways to navigate these new situations and opportunities.
  8. I’m going to share what I’ve learned with you, and look forward to hearing your experiences too!
