Description

In this text, Stephens encourages curiosity and creativity in his students and all library workers by connecting trends from outside the profession to its bedrock values. With a humanist lens, he reflects on such topics as: how libraries can empower kindness; developing a coterie of kindred spirits at conferences outside libraryland; inspiring creativity in library patrons; the most effective professional development experiences; comfort, joy, and hygge in the library; the characteristics of compassionate leadership; how to contend with a devil's advocate; and mentoring new librarians. Stephens' perspective will reenergize your commitment to librarianship and the important work that libraries are doing every day.
