If you want to inspire some creative thinking in your library staff, especially in these tough times of layoffs and a need for inspired solutions to difficult problems, take a look at these lovely "Creating Future Libraries" notebooks created by Aaron Schmidt. You can get the standard notebooks (both sides pictured below) or you can order custom notebooks.
I'd like to pass them out at a staff training day, ask people to record thoughts for the next month, and then come together again with all of our ideas. What would you do?
See Aaron's site for more information on his inspiration and ordering information. At only $3 each with discounts on orders over 20, can you afford not to buy them?
