Sharing Solutions to Our Library Programming and Funding Challenges

Whatever corner of library world you find yourself in Georgia, you find yourself facing challenges.  Whether your challenges are related to creating a culture of collaboration, finding ways to counter budget cuts, or exploring strategies for innovating in the face of less than perfect conditions, I think it is important for us to realize we are not alone and that our plight is not as isolated as we might think.

In the spirit of pulling together as a community of learners and professional colleagues, we are starting an informal series, “Yes, We CAN“, featuring guest posts from some of our regular GLMA blog team members as well as guest posts from other fellow Georgia librarians.  In addition, school librarians from around the country (as well as some international friends!), will be contributing to these conversations to help us find creative solutions as we network and problem solve together to find ways to overcome obstacles in our path to do what matters most:  create a learning centered library program that makes a difference in the lives of those we serve.    I invite you to join the conversation through blog comments or volunteering to write a guest post to share your strategies or story of how you’ve tackled a particularly difficult issue to help us all grow and learn.

If you have topics you’d like to see blogged and/or resources shared, please leave a comment on this post or email me directly at buffy.hamilton at I’m looking forward to diversifying the voices on our blog and hearing yours as we hope to expand conversations for learning and engage greater participation!
