True to our Tennessee roots, the efforts and talents of our volunteers are the heart and soul of Tenn-Share. Following are some of the ways you can get involved with Tenn-Share and reasons you might get involved:
Serve on a committee - Contact the Chair of a committee with which you would like to work.
Help develop a database consortium - If your library subscribes to an electronic resource and you think a group subscription would provide better rates, contact Jenifer Grady. You can help out by identifying and recruiting member libraries for group purchases that save everyone time and money.
Share your special talents, skills, expertise* - Contact Tenn-Share's Executive Director if you have a special talent or skill you'd like to: a) use on behalf of Tenn-Share as an organization, or b) share with other Tennessee librarians as a workshop, webinar, conference program, etc.
It's my job to be involved
It helps me serve my patrons better
I can dream bigger, outside the box
TS can implement what we can't
I was frustrated locally and wanted to branch out
I can network and develop a rapport with colleagues who are geographically diverse and from all library types
It helps me to remember that mine is not the only type
I owe Tenn-Share for what it has saved our library budget
TS serves all types of libraries
I'm nosy and want to know what's going on around the state.
