Saturday Ignite Session: Let the Wild Rumpus Start: Adventures Beyond the Library Echo Chamber Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

What do Burning Man, SXSW Interactive, and airplanes have to do with libraries? On the surface nothing obvious, but when we let our librar* flag wave loud and proud we discover these are ripe spaces to engage with communities unaccustomed to the wonders of contemporary libraries. Sharing eclectic professional development opportunities with librarian comrades is exhilarating and a crucial action to keep this profession from expiring of stale nostalgia and reluctance to adaptive change. This is an invitation to be an exploratory librarian and embark on new adventures beyond the library silos together!

#weneeddiversebooks includes romance novels. There are too many cases of LGBTQ romances ending in tragedy throughout media, but that isn’t the case any longer. Niche publishers are stepping up and publishing excellent romances for a wide range of queer identities including: transgender and genderqueer people, fluid identities that don’t fit in any one label, and asexuality. Let’s get these titles onto the shelves and into the hands of the patrons who need and want them.
