Do you recall a NTTimes article about a “Hipper Crowd of Shushers“, which appeared about 18 months ago? This article appeared all over the library blogosphere. Well, this group of young library professionals is still getting together and hanging out. But they also do so much more.
They now have a blog at the thedeskset.org. And they are putting their collective talents to work. They are hosting a holiday party in which the proceeds are benefitting literacy for incarcerated teens.
I would call this group of young professional librarians, and book lovers, true information activists. How great would it be if groups like this popped up in many American cities?
