School and public librarians often take for granted their similarities, and forget that sometimes there are major differences in their missions and daily tasks. Meeting on a monthly basis can reduce some of these misunderstandings and allows you to learn to truly appreciate the demands on your fellow librarian. When you plan for your own staff development you likely attend only the conferences geared to your own type of library, and may forget that you would be a welcome addition to state or national conferences open to all librarians (Wepking 2009, 26).

Monthly meetings allow us to discuss our common patrons, including which students are succeeding and which students need help or are being disruptive in either the public or school setting. It is often surprising for both sides to hear of completely differing behaviors from the same students. Working together and sharing what is seen in alternate settings can provide clues as to whether a teen is simply experiencing normal feelings of rebellion, or if there might be a serious issue that needs to be addressed.
