My AHA Moment



Recently, the Mutual of Omaha’s AHA Moment van stopped at my library and took some “AHA Moment” videos of Topekans.

Pretty cool project! They’re on a 25-city tour, capturing people’s “Aha moments” – which they define as “It’s a moment of clarity, a defining moment where you gain real wisdom – wisdom you can use to change your life.”

Anyway – I did one – my Aha moment is embedded in this post. Mine was (in true librarian fashion) the reason I became a librarian. A couple of other people from my library did these, too – check them out!

Why show these? It’s a cool project … and one you can potentially mimic. The Mutual of Omaha is doing a national “aha moment” thing … but why couldn’t you do a localized AHA Moment? Or even better – create some “library aha moments” of patrons saying why they love your library! Show patrons sharing what rocks about your library – reading, books, free wifi even.

Either way, it could be a cool way to get your community talking about your library or organization. nothing wrong with that!

    Thanks so much for your Aha moment post.  It gave me a great idea for my high school library.  I was looking for something new and as seniors are thinking about their college essays, this is a timely suggestion!

    I’ve been trying to do a “Why do you love theatre?” video blog for KC Stage in the same vein – based on the WDYDWYD blog (http://www.wdydwyd.com/). Haven’t done too many as I don’t have the equipment – but definitely a great idea!
