Making Connections

One of the absolute “truths” I cling to is that everyone crosses your radar for a reason and sometimes that “reason” is because you can lend a hand in some way.  Another “truth” is that one of the most important roles a public library can fill is in making connections.  Case in point.

Sometime ago a patron was sharing an employment dilemma.  At that time I happened to know of a vacancy in an area business.  Telling my patron to hang on, I made a call and low and behold, after an appropriate interview, a part-time job was secured.  Recently I learned that the part-time job was becoming full-time with benefits.  I think I was nearly as thrilled as my patron.   My day was complete!

You have heard me say it many times; while emergency services are in the business of saving lives, libraries are the position to change lives.
