kctipton writes "I found 'A Librarian at Every Table' today while doing a little editing at dmoz.org. It's an interesting concept (meaning, I've never seen it done): librarians as local community builders and activists. It's a site by Kathleen de la PeÃ±a McCook who got her Ph.D. from UW-Madison. She's apparently given ALA (and other) presentations, so some of you may have heard her speak.
I'd love to hear from those of you who have done this sort of thing or have seen it done. Sure librarians can occasionally organize and get the attention of the national press... but what else?"
