So it has definitely been a while since I’ve blogged! We are FINALLY in our brand new library and it is beautiful. We had our “soft” opening yesterday and I was surprised at the number of patrons that came in. All of them were very impressed with our new building. It was a lot of hard work, and I mean a lot. I think we spent days moving things from one spot, to another spot, back to the old spot, then back to another spot. Lots and lots of moving. It’s nice to finally say that things are (pretty much) done. I cannot wait to use our new story room, it’s so nice! My preschool ST starts July 14th, so pretty soon here I’ll get to try it out. I’m going to try and blog about my themes once I actually do my ST. So please, check back for more posts in the upcoming weeks!
I recently saw a post on School Library Journal’s website about the top 100 children’s novels. I began to look at the list and realized I have only read two of the 100 titles. Yeah, I’m ashamed to say I work at a library in the children’s area. So, I have decided to challenge myself to read all 100 books along with my fellow co-worker and awesome friend, Seth. We haven’t really set a time line yet due to the fact that I don’t have a lot of free time with a toddler running around. On a side note, she got very upset when I was trying to read Charlotte’s Web last night. So upset that she sat on top of my chest while I was lying on the bed so I could not see the pages. Anways, I finished the book today! Go me! It of course is both a sad and amazing story about a spider and a pig who find friendship. Hey Seth, how far along are you? Only 99 more to go! On to, A Wrinkle in Time.
