New Librarianship: Community and Innovation

I like a great many of the points made in the New Librarianship MOOC. The 2 key points for me so far are:
1) engage with your community
2) innovate

How about this as a great example of engaging with your community - loaning out cake tins (or pans if you will, as it is in America).

When it comes to leadership and innovation, I read a couple of interesting stories via Twitter in the past week. The Guardian offer 5 top tips on reinventing librarians and this TeachThought post describes how librarians of the future will be kept busy.

The article I liked best though also came from the Guardian - the true value of libraries to communities. The final paragraph says it all.
