Nancy Pearl Visit

September 23, 2009

I was so lucky to be able to attend the Nancy Pearl reader’s advisory workshop yesterday. What an amazing woman! While telling us all we don’t have to read everything to be an expert RA librarian, she clearly has read EVERYTHING! She could remember plots and character names of most of the books attendees shouted out. She has a unique take on RA, and while I”m anxious to give it a try, I’m pessimistic that it can be done too easily without having read widely. Also, her brand of RA was dependent on developing relationships overtime with returning patrons, which is great, but I’m not sure how realistic that is in our busy libraries. Overall, it was a great workshop and I came home excited about RA!
