Storytelling at the library

Posted on: February 29, 2008

One of the little nice details I noticed when I was hired here was the "Meet your librarian" display in the third floor. It was basically a display the librarians put together to represent themselves and allow the students and patrons to know us a bit better. The last two were the director and our instruction librarian. The next one will feature our archivist, and eventually I will put one up about myself. The idea is a nice way to tell a bit of our stories to the people who come to the library.

I thought about that when I saw this item from the blog Anecdote about "Adding storytelling to the employee engagement agenda." I am thinking that this is similar to their story wall idea, maybe a bit more public. I am not sure how the bloggers at Anecdote see the wall idea: do patrons of the business see it too, or is it just for the employees? Anyhow, a nice idea in my humble opinion.

The story wall idea is just one way to trigger people to tell each other stories. Seeing the pictures remind people of remarkable events that they might be prompted to recount with people who weren't there.

Thank you for stopping by. I am curious about that idea of triggering people to tell each other stories. Best, and keep on blogging.
