Confession: Some of this is shamelessly copied from Gwyneth Jones’ Blog, now known as the Daring Librarian!
I can’t speak enough about the power of the TL Virtual Cafe meetings. (I blogged about the February one here.) I was extremely pleased last month to see no less then six South Carolina school librarians in the mix of over 80 participants. Discussions are impassioned, purposeful, quick-paced, and enlightening. They are planned for the first of every month. Put this one on your calendar as well! Checkout the wiki used for planning, and even join and make suggestions yourself.
