I went to a happy hour last night with the local SLA chapter's young professionals group and was reminded again of why I love being a part of the library profession. I've met the greatest people both while I was in school and at various professional events I've attended. It's fascinating to hear about the variety of things that people are doing in their jobs.
So, this is my pitch to all recent library school grads - get out there and join groups like SLA and ALA and go meet the awesome people who are the next generation of librarians!
