SLA NY Power Networking

By Esther Marie Jackson

Networking

I’m already gearing up for the SLA NY Power Networking event on May 7th, and in the spirit of that event, here are some quick-fire reasons why I’m attending.

  1. I’m new to NYC, and I want to meet other librarians
  2. I’m new to NYC, and I want to meet other New Yorkers (Can I call myself that if I’ve only been here three months?)
  3. I’m a new library professional, and I’d like to meet both seasoned pros, and library students
  4. I like small talk
  5. I like networking
  6. I like appetizers

I also like that this event, although clearly professional in nature, seems like it will be a lot of fun.  What better way to avoid awkwardly standing in a corner at an event than to be forced (encouraged?) to chat with a wide range of people in a short amount of time?

I hope to meet you there!
