Ask Me Anything: public library staff...it's coming! : Libraries
Hi everyone, As proposed a few months ago, the Membership Advisory Committee of the Public Library Association would like to sponsor an Ask Me Anythi…
PLA is going to do this next week on Reddit. While I can appreciate that they want to do it anonymously (it’s not unheard of within the practices of AMAs on Reddit), I was really hoping that it would not. The common refrain from the librarian profession is “where are our leaders?”; this doesn’t answer that question.
However, if they feel that the only way to be completely honest and talk about the nitty gritty of what they do, then having that conversation is more important than identifying the participants. I’m sorry don’t feel like they can be completely honest without the veil of anonymity, but so be it.
I did get a chuckle from the person who created a Reddit account just to write a four line passive aggressive reply to me. That was pretty hilarious.
I look forward to seeing how this plays out.
