The Darien Library in Connecticut (pronounced dairy-ann) is a shinning example of what a library can be if they strive to search the horizon for what is ahead, trust their employees in deeds not words, and get involved in their community. I was privileged to have lunch with the Darien folks at Midwinter. After talking to them for a bit, I told them I would jump academic ship in a heartbeat if they were in my area. They are a library that truly gets it. If I had a transporter, I would commute to Darien every day.
I know they will be hiring soon, but right now they have a fellowship open. I strongly encourage anyone looking for a fellowship to apply and keep your eyes peeled for job openings. This is definitely a library to watch.
