Dreaming of a new tomorrow?

I work as a volunteer in an inner city library in london, and really am pro library 2.0. I was wondering if this could be entered into the library or borough of libraries I work at. I reckon a great way would be each department (childrens,fiction, non-fiction, genre specific etc) having a blog that our clients could see and comment on. This could keep people up to date on whats happening at the library. You could have an FAQ'S how to use the computers and other queries. I mean, what seems weird is that staff are constantly being introduced to computers in our workplace, but we're not using them for our most important component of the library......the end user. I also feel this may enpower our staff. You could have recommendation lists on books etc.......I really wonder why they don't do it.......I might even suggest it to them.......

Sound like a great idea to me. The blog could include book reviews, news about community events based at the library, and tips on how to get more out of the services being provided.
