Travels in the night

We’ve got Tanya Batt with us today to speak to our early learning, elementary and grade nine students.  It should be a good day, and I hope our kids enjoy their time with her.  I’ll post some reflections and photos of our day later.

From a personal perspective, it was cool going to meet her at the airport bus last night.  It felt like I had my own guest coming to visit, which I’m now really looking forward to.  In my dark and shady past I worked at a tourist information centre, (any Canadians remember “A place to live, a place to grow, Ontary ary ary O”? – they need to go back to that song) and I really enjoyed meeting travelers from all over and telling them about the local sights.  I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that working there was kind of a prelude to working in a library really – helping people find things, researching information about places to stay, and just generally telling people where to go 🙂

What’s in a name?

I hate the name for this blog already.  But I really don’t know what to call it.

The intent of the blog is to mainly (but not exclusively) highlight tech developments in the school library world.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  In the off chance you’re not one of the three people reading this who already know who I am, you can contact me via twitter @yislibrary or by email farrellb AT gmail DOT com
