What is flexible?

Ok- so to get this flex thing down, I need to figure out what flexible means.

The traditionalist in me heads to the dictionary. Gotta love Merriam Webster's definitions:

  1. capable of bending or being bent
  2. easily changed: able to change or do different things
  3. willing to change or to try different things

So how does one "bend" a library? How do we change and do different things? How do you change a culture who grew up thinking the library was a quiet place for books and story time? What's the key?

A dear friend of mine said, "Start small, Mary Alice. Pick one thing at a time." But there is the problem. One thing. Just one. For now.
