Seth and Me

On a quiet Sunday morning I woke early, made a cup of tea, and checked my RSS feed. Seth Godin's post It's not the rats you need to worry about really made me think.

I thoughtfully reflected on my practice in school librarianship. I wrote a blog post. 2010.

Being a thoughtful practioner, I emailed Seth for permission to link to his post  via the email on his website. On that quiet Sunday morning, to my shock, he responded less than ten minutes later. Twenty minutes later he posted his now infamous, in our circle, the first of his library posts in which he he exhorts libraries to train people to take intellectual initiative.
 
I respectfully suggest to librarians that Seth really does get it as his latest post shows. This is what we do in schools, IF we are doing our jobs. As leaders in our field reflect, Seth is the ultimate patron. School libraries, public libraries - all libraries.

Thanks for paying attention, Seth.
