Wisconsin Library Association librarians nail the "Yes, and!"

Thank you to the librarians who attended "Yes, And: Improvising Your Way to A More Creative and Positive Library" at the Wisconsin Library Association 2015 conference. It was your willingness to suspend judgment, take a risk, be a little silly and play along that made the session work. Several of you stopped me afterwards to ask if I'd be willing to do a workshop at your library. Why, yes. I would. I believe in the value of play. It helps ignite that passion that keynote speaker Jay Tanner was talking about. And even in the short time we had together, and through the few games we played together, you were generating new and exciting ideas. Congratulations to those of you who were nervous about attending, but did anyway. You were all improv stars!
