Happy Hour? When what we do is different than what we say we do
In case you missed it, Heather, Karen, Robin and I were on Twitter on Thursday night (and on email too but you can’t see the emails, poor you because they had way more sarcasm and snark) discussing the YALSA Happy Hour that will be going on in Chicago.
Disclaimer: Heather and I are members of YALSA and have been since library school. Karen is an on again and off again member as finances allow. We have worked on a variety of YALSA committees. We are BIG YALSA supporters here on Teen Librarian Toolbox!
The problem we’re having is not the Happy Hour. Meeting and mingling and drinking with YALSA people is awesome and should be done more often – let’s start local meet-ups! Our problem is with the evening’s “entertainment.”
