Libraries are getting on board with Meet Up, Are you?
The hottest thing on the horizon and a great way to hook up with people in your area or other parts of the country, is a network called, "Meet Up".
If you have an interest, find the local group and meet people. Simple, eh?
Look at what towns already have Meet Up groups sponsored by librarians. here
Start your own group here. Take advantage of this opportunity to get involved with other groups that could benefit by using services your library offers.
Update- Thanks for the comment about the fees. It look like it's free if you want to attend meet ups but if you want to start your own, it does cost. Looks like it can range from $19 for one month to $72 for 6 months ($12 a month).
There are plenty of groups to join- here are a few fun ones from my area that would make great networking opportunities ....
