What brought you to a career in librarianship? Was it a fascination with books or information? A desire to serve society in a positive way? However you came into your career, like millions of people, you might be struggling to find meaning and fulfillment in your work. In November’s episode of American Libraries Live, library career expert Catherine Hakala-Ausperk will help us make a plan for revisiting personal values, understanding your options, identifying skill gaps and creating plans for growth. Catherine is a 31-year Ohio public library veteran with experience in everything from direct customer service to management and administration. Now an active library planner, speaker, consultant and trainer, she is also the author of the upcoming book Renew Yourself! A Six-Step Plan for More Meaningful Work (ALA, coming in January, 2017). This free, one hour discussion is a chance for you to listen to what Catherine has to say and provide your own input. Whether you’re a library veteran who’s feeling burned out, a new LIS grad just starting out or somewhere in mid-career, please join us on at Noon Eastern Nov. 18 to discuss how you can revitalize yourself by finding new meaning in your work.
