I'm still catching up from the Internet Librarian conf in Monterey this past week. I was especially excited that the Shanachies were back at this show, exactly 1 year after their first inspiring appearance.
Check out my full blog entry here.
As you may recall, these are the Dutch guys who drove across the US last fall, interviewing librarians. They ended up writing a book about it that comes with a way-cool DVD movie of highlights of their trip. During their return to Monterey, they launched the book at a festive signing in the exhibit hall on Oct 21.
(L-R) Geert van den Boogaard, Jaap van de Geer, and Erik Boekesteijn enjoyed signing copies of their book (ShanachieTour: A Library Road Trip Across America) for fans.
If you want to see lots more (better!) pictures, go to Flickr and search for "IL2008 + Shanachie".
And if you need inspiration on ways to use storytelling to promote your library, get their book/movie combo. (Full disclosure: I was the project editor, so of course I think it's a great package!!)
