I have tried to take the high road on this blog and given the board the benefit of the doubt because it was the right thing to do for the staff and for this great library system. I can't do that today - I am disgusted, disillusioned, and outraged. I know a lot of you feel the same.
There is a way you can communicate with other folks who want to do something constructive. A friend has created an unmoderated, private forum on Google Groups called "LibraryLib" for anyone who wishes to join in the discussion.
For the protection of the library system and those interested in joining please maintain anonymity:
- Join with an email address used only for this group.
- Do not use any indentifying details when describing yourself, your branch/department or the library.
- Do not access the forum at work.
- Assume the administration will visit this forum.
Click here to join - LibraryLib.
I will continue to keep the blog open for comments during this transition period.
