Darien is Assembling a Powerhouse Staff

This just in:


Kate Sheehan will join Darien Library as Head of Knowledge and Innovation Services on March 1, 2008. She is currently Coordinator of Library Automation at Danbury Library, blogs at loosecannonlibrarian.net, is an active speaker on Library 2.0 and social software initiatives, and has gained national recognition for implementing the first LibraryThing plug-in to a library catalog.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: watch what Darien Library does very closely. The new building and staff will exemplify a true model of innovation and planning for public libraries.

And get a load of that title: Head of Knowledge and Innovation Services – I’ll be adding it to my Hyperlinked Library talk.
