Like many of you, I was glued to the Winter Olympics television coverage. I was proud of the performance of all our athletes and our 25 medals. In particular, I was impressed by our female athletes, especially the curlers and the hockey team.
As I was monitoring Twitter during the Olympics, a mother of a four year old girl posted what her daughter said after one of the women's hockey games. As the players took off their helmets, the little girl exclaimed, "Mommy, they're girls!" She was surprised that women could play hockey at a high level. Also on Twitter, a cartoon was circulated. The coach of the women's hockey team told his players "to play like girls".
What can we in the library world take from this? That we should be the best we can be in providing quality library service to our communities.
Let's all "play like girls".
