In October 2006, Yarra Plenty Library participated in the online learning program Learning 2.0, designed to introduce participants to the world of Web 2.0. Our journey since the instigation of this program has led us to new ways of delivering services to our community. This paper will outline the concept behind the Learning 2.0 Program, look at the Library Worker 2.0 follow-up training modules and the applications in which staff now use Web 2.0 technologies to provide new interactive services and programs for our community. It also outlines how we have shared our experiences with the wider library community.
