Although not a librarian himself, Vielmetti has a patron’s appreciation for libraries—actually he’s more of a superpatron, which happens to be the name of his blog (vielmetti.typepad.com/superpatron), launched in December 2005. “It’s written from the point of view of a library patron, rather than librarians,” he says. “I felt that there were things librarians may not see if they sit behind a desk that you can when you walk through the door.”
I’ll say it again: Every library needs a superpatron! How do we make sure we are fostering them?
