A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to visit the Shanachies in Amsterdam. These are the dynamic guys from DOK Library Concept Center who drove across America interviewing librarians, and also spent three weeks visiting Australian libraries. You can read all about their work in the US, AUS, and other countries here and here.
Now comes the best part: The Shanachies continue to actively plan conferences and presentations including an event for Queens Library staff in April. Yes! The guys are coming to Gotham and I will let you know all about it here. So, keep an eye on this blog.
Erik and Jaap are super cool men with a wonderful sense of humor. It was nice to finally spend more than 2 minutes talking to them in person J I must say that Jaap gained many stars and is on his way to super rock star status for being wonderfully generous.
