Teaching others is at the core of what the librarian does every day. It is through engaging in all of the other 6 principles do we effectively take on that which is teaching others how to read, learn, be entertained, discover and hopefully want to then teach someone else. It is by using creative solutions that librarians are able to connect users with information, provide access to and freedom of information, and take advantage of new information needs and opportunities all for the ultimate advantage of serving the patron.
Such creative solutions involve many aspects, two of which are exemplified here. Through creative use with what is otherwise a simple flyer, ideas are fostered, information is shared, and opportunities arise for further learning and enjoyment of an author or a subject. It is by providing this access that we serve the library patron.
