Book week update
The program included a dramatic reenactment of the book 'My Uncle's Donkey'. I was the donkey (see the photo) - it was exhausting because the donkey is quite busy. Some of the teachers asked if I was a professional actress - ha, ha, ha (fyi - I looked miserable walking down the aisle at our wedding because I was so overwhelmed having everyone looking at me - and here I am. Weird how things turn out). Apparently I moved some of our staff to tears (tears of laughter).
I thoroughly enjoyed having the kids in the library. Much more fun than the many meetings that I attend and the hours in front of the computer. Our library is quite a large space and the kids were allowed to go through the library on a treasure hunt. They loved it.
Now that I've been in the job for almost a year, I've had a run through of all the major aspects of my job that I'm responsible for. Surviving the first year in a job is a good feeling. But there's still so much for me to learn - always!
