Cycling for Libraries Conference

This is happening from Copenhagen to Berlin from May 28 to June 7, 2011.  I will be along a famous bike route. The purpose is to discuss library topics along the way with just average people in informal settings.  I would like to organize one in Nashville maybe in conjunction with Tour de Nash.  Maybe using Nashville's greenways and stopping at various libraries or small bookstores along the way.

Profile Information

Type of library:

A little about me:

I am the cataloging, serials, reference librarian at Nashville State Community Collge. I love being a librarian and helping people find the information they need. One of my other great loves is riding my bicycle. I am a bike commuter and advocate for greenways and bike lanes. One of my favorite quotes is, "My two favourite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything. The perfect day: riding a bike to the library." -- Peter Golkin, Arlington, Virginia.

Here is an article from the Tennesean about the Delvin Farm in Williamson County and a celebration of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA's). http://docs.newsbank.com/openurl?ctx_ver=z39.88-2004&rft_id=info:sid/iw.newsbank.com:NewsBank:NTNB&rft_val_format=info:ofi/fmt:kev:mtx:ctx&rft_dat=120F54006E3B1158&svc_dat=InfoWeb:aggregated5&req_dat=0D543062E6BA66AA

Checkout this article on urban gardens and the friendships they grow. "The first word in community gardens is ' community ,' and I think they can be great tools bringing people together of all ages," said Cassi Johnson, director of Food Security Partners of Middle Tennessee, a group dedicated to making connections that will create a secure and healthy food system. "And to see results in their neighborhoods and on their plates."

Good Morning, Sally,
Thank you for the kind greeting. I am a Reference Librarian here at the Nashville Public Library. I worked many years before the Internet, so every technological advance is an adventure for me. Therefore I am looking forward to this TennShare experience.

My main hobby is playing the piano. The last book I read was A FAR COUNTRY, by Daniel Mason. I recommended it for my Book Club. Most members thought it was extremely slow paced.

I am in charge of periodicals here at the Main Library. We have all of our bound volumes in open stacks. We currently subscribe to about 750 current titles.

I also enjoy being a librarian.

I hope to here from you again.
