Welcome to DURHAM BY THE BOOK, the Durham County Library blog. My name is Skip Auld, and I’ve been library director at Durham County Library for two years. This blog is our new attempt to communicate with our community. It’s a two-way street, so please comment here or call or email me (919-560-0160 … email@example.com).
As I write, I’m at the American Library Association annual conference getting ready to accept an Innovation in Technology award for our wiki (http://dclstrategicplan.pbwiki.com/). We used it last year as we planned the future of library services together with you. We’ll continue using it as we plan this summer and fall for our Main Library building renovation. We’re trying to make sure we meet critical needs in Durham for education, uplift, and quality of life.
I picked up a bumper sticker at one of my meetings a couple of days ago:
A city with a great library
I like that. Let’s work together to make it happen.
