Announcing Library Boing Boing at the American Library Association

Folks from the American Library Association are launching a member interest group called Library Boing Boing, and we're delighted to give our blessing. From Jenny Levine's announcement, at the ALA's Marginalia site:

On the one hand, Library Boing Boing is a collaboration between ALA and the fabulously amazing Boing Boing folks to highlight all of the great new things libraries are doing. The most visible result will be regular posts about those great new things on the Boing Boing site itself.

On the other hand, Library Boing Boing: The Group has its own goals to help happy mutants in local communities connect with their happy mutant librarians to do good, work together on our shared interests, and make the world more better.

Once they're up and running, we'll be publishing regular updates on the group's activities and plans, as well as any events and programs that you can attend or support. For ALA members. the first step would be to sign the ALA member petition to formally establish the Library Boing Boing Member Interest Group; everyone else, watch this space.

ALA Happy Mutants rejoice – Library Boing Boing is coming! [ALA Marginalia]

  1. So super cool!! I’m not a member of ALA because I can’t afford their membership fee just yet, but I am 110% behind this! And put me on the list for librarians who are interested in speaking at TED. That would be the most awesome thing ever!

  2. I’m not technically a librarian, but I work at a library that is an ALA member. So naturally I’ll sign the petition, and after that, once the group is up and running, I’ll be joining. I’ve always appreciated BoingBoing’s coverage of library and library-related issues and this just adds even more to it.

  3. “… Library Boing Boing is a collaboration between ALA and the fabulously amazing Boing Boing folks to highlight all of the great new things libraries are doing.”

    It is true, the BoingBoing folks are fabulously amazing. :)
