Welcome Five Weeks to a Social Library Participants

It was heart-wrenching, but we finally narrowed the field down to forty souls. They are a very interesting bunch, all over the map, lots of different kinds of libraries. They are eager as well; some of them have started posting their initial thoughts. It was such an awesome pool, I hope those not chosen choose to stick around, listen, and participate in the conversation, because they were all great.
