Meet Librarian Lori Bell Tonight
Apr 05, 2004 05:48 PDT
This evening there will be an online live interview with Lori Bell, a
dynamic librarian many of you have been hearing and reading about during
recent months. She is doing much to bring the latest technology and
services to visually impaired patrons. We believe you will find the
interview enjoyable. (See description of the show below.)
Since Lori will be a guest speaker during the LUA convention in July in
Birmingham, Alabama, tonight's show will help all of us get a sneak
preview into just how she is making a difference in the library world.
Time: 5:30 PST to 7:00 PST

LIBRARY JOURNAL calls her a "mover and shaker". When one visits with
Lori Bell, one may find oneself adjusting one's stereotype of a typical
librarian! Lori is a fireball of energy, making a huge impact in the
world around her. It's always fascinating to hear another person's life
story ... and we'll all enjoy hearing Lori's. As she ran track and field
in high school, she probably never envisioned making the cool waves
she's made in her professional life. So much for the theory that
librarians are uninteresting! Come and visit with a fascinating lady.
