Library Learning 2.0: Week 2, Task 3: Lifelong Learners

Libraries and lifelong learning go hand in hand - each brings you to the other. Those of us who love and live in libraries are both learners and facilitators of learning. The more we learn, the better we can facilitate the learning of those who use our libraries. My goal for Library Learning 2.0 is to expand my knowledge of new technology available to libraries and select those tools that will work best for my library and its users. I will learn new skills; my school community will receive expanded services; we will all learn together.

I am a natural lifelong learner: I am curious, self-motivated, organized, persistent, patient and resourceful. The first seven habits of highly effective learners should be the proverbial piece of cake. My greatest challenge is the last 1/2 habit: to play! Along with being a lifelong learner, I have also been a lifelong 'straight man' (or, in my case, woman). My greatest challenge will be reminding myself to play and finding ways for others to play with what I have learned.
