The Pursuit of Happiness and Advancement

I am interested in how technology can help my patrons. In the smaller sense, how technology can make their lives easier and fun. In a larger sense, how technology can help them advance themselves - without having to leave our rural area. This blog will contain information about what we are doing at our library to help our patrons, as well as what other libraries are doing. I will also be exploring libraries and education in the virtual world, Second Life.
