It's endless!

When I started as a volunteer librarian, I certainly never foresaw the tasks in front of me. OK, mainly what I never saw was just how long it would take to spine label books. Sure, that's probably because the mere thought of that had never crossed my mind....

Then again, I'd never have worked so hard to build the collection, either, if I'd been blessed with foresight on such problem areas. And I'm mighty glad I did. Where else, after all, can you read-aloud wordless picture books, poetry, non-fiction, and the Dumb Bunnies?

Exactly my point.

Thanks for a great (first)Schmoooooze last night. Very informative, and a nice vibe....much better than the adult literary world. Now, if there was only some better parking! LOL You can check up on my musing at www.starbuckled.blogspot.com. Cheers.

I have been here a couple of times, and I'm always quite impressed. Not sure if you have heard or have any interest, but there is a poetry contest that has a top prize of $10,000 and other prizes. Just click my name for the site. Whatever you do, just keep writing...

You have to be a little compulsive to have a successful career as a librarian, but, as you point out, there are excellent perks to keep things balanced.
