still swamped! June 20, 2010

Posted by Katie in shoptalk.

I don’t know how else to word how truly busy public librarians are during the summer other than to point you towards this fabulous post written by Abby (the) Librarian.

Just this past week alone, I ran our weekly movie day, a grade-school mural painting program, Teen Book Club, a Bubble Party for our 3-7 year-olds, a family program with fish crafts, a packed storytime, and our weekly Wii gaming day. Our Saturday storytime didn’t happen (mostly because Illinois was racked with power outages this weekend), and I will be adding a second storytime program because this week’s was so packed.

We love seeing our kids and teens on a regular, daily basis — but it is truly exhausting.

Things should settle down this week. (We have likely gotten most of the sign-ups out of the way, and our teen volunteers have all have a full week of training/working.)

Look for my portion of Nerds Heart YA results this week, and a lot of reviews that I’ve been holding until the books were released to the public!

This is my library too! Today was my major program day and it’s been exhausting and busy as heck. Oh summer, love and loathe thee. But it keeps me busy and I like that.

Hehe, thanks for the link. πŸ™‚
And yes… I am exhausted… We had people from the zoo bring live animals today and it was… a major production to say the least. πŸ™‚

We can do it! Go Team Library!
