Coming Home | Rosamunde Pilcher
post image

Last week a young child came running into the library, unceremoniously ditched her shoes, and continued into the children‘s area to play with the learning toys.
I could not love this more. The library is a home for the community, a place of welcome for all ages.

I just started this Geek Challenge & Giveaway at my library and it‘s been super popular! My next two Geek Giveaways are Amulet and Phoebe and her Unicorn (which I advertised on the back of the flyer).

I had a parent ask today if I had an email list so she could keep track of what was coming up. Passive Programming for the win!

LibrarianRyan Yeahhh. And I love the idea. If I was still at a public library I would so steal it. 11mo

I think this has to be the most random object I‘ve found in the Children‘s Library. We gets lots of clothing, toys, water bottles, rocks, leaves and sticks- but this is new.
Anyone else have some favorite “lost in the library” items?
#publiclibrarian

LibrarianRyan Hummm. That might be hard to replace depending on the model of the machine. 13mo
BookInMyHands @LibrarianRyan Yeah, I posted about it on the library‘s Facebook page with a reminder about our Lost and Found, so hopefully it will find home! 13mo
LibrarianRyan @BookInMyHands you asked what things we found in our library and I couldn't think of anything upstanding until now. Currently I have someone's cane sitting on the reference desk. It s a nice customized medical cane that has been here over a week. Our building is quite large and I'm not exactly sure how the person made it out of the building without it. 13mo
BookInMyHands @LibrarianRyan We had one too! I usually only save Lost and Found for a month, but I kept this one for 3 hoping someone would come back to claim it- no luck. 13mo

Our Circulation remodel is still not completely done (9 months and counting- waiting for the desk), but I painted a few walls on Friday so we could hang my mom‘s painting this weekend.
One more thing done, and I love how it looks. Except the wall plates. I forgot those.

Working in bare feet today after trying to stop, or at least redirect, a flooding sink in the women‘s bathroom. Thank goodness it was the sink and not the toilet!

I‘m nearing the end of an almost 11 hour shift, with a cold, prepping for Summer Reading. Everything about this cover is me right now 🤣.

Someone put up a new “motivational” poster in the library break room, “If at first you don‘t succeed, you‘re in good company.”

So I fixed it on my break today. Instead of Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Lincoln and Truman we now have Oprah Winfrey, Mazie Hirono, Dolores Huerta, and J.K. Rowling. I‘ll work on the biographies this week.

My plan is to change it every month.

Laugh Out Loud | James Patterson, Chris Grabenstein

When new books come in it's like Christmas.
Every. Single. Time.
Even after 17 years as a Children's Librarian, I still feel giddy. That must mean I'm in the right profession.

RebL It's the same at the collection where I work. In fact, I gather all the student interns and workers and we have an unboxing break. 2y
BookInMyHands @RebL I love that, what a great idea! 2y
RebL Do it! It's great for team building. 2y
