I haven’t made it to an ALA convention yet be attending at least once is a goal of mine as a librarian. A few years ago I was able to attend a Joint Conference of Librarians of Color in TX a few years ago and it was wonderful! Librarian conferences are fun, informative and energizing! […]

I’d like to be counting down days to the end of the year, but there’s too much to do to get a library shut down! Collecting, cleaning, organizing and preparing the facility for next year are much easier said than done.

Good morning! It’s quite cloudy and overcast this morning, but I’m feeling so energetic! Perhaps its the bright green nail polish I got during my pedi last night? Maybe it’s the thought of going to exercise later today. I can’t believe it’s been so long! This past week I got my exercise re-organizing shelves in […]
