What does the phrase "librarians build communities" mean to you?

To realize our full potential as a membership initiative group and eventually as a round table, we'd like to support, encourage, and recognize all forms of community connection. Bring your ideas and enthusiasm to this meeting to help craft the next movement in ALA and our profession - one that will celebrate the contributions and value that librarians bring to our communities.
