All of my library holds came in at once. I might take a social media break so I can read them all..

One of the laws of the universe is that all library holds come at the same time. This is what arrived for me today at my own library. I am also working slowly through four books. I am also feeling a need to do some creative writing and just general de-cluttering of the brain.

When I was writing the “Choose Love” post I took the opportunity to read though some of the post that I wrote when I was doing my media fast last year. It’s kind of interesting to revisit that experiment. It was great experience and I want to do it again. So I am. Starting tomorrow.

I’ll see you in a week!


Slave to the Circ Desk

Yesterday everyone in my town turned in books and so I helped out at the Circulation Desk most of the day. Here is a time lapse video of the last hour of the day. The color looks weird because I used the Cross-Processing filter on You Tube. I also used some random music that they offer, as well.

Also: I need to smile more! And be less squinty-eyed. And my hair is at a jack-ass length right now (Ok, I’ll stop beating myself up now).

Things found in books

While moving we handled eleventy-billion books and in the process found all sorts of interesting things inside of them. At the end of the day I arranged them and took a photo. Here is a gallery of some of the things we found. I am thinking about making this a regular thing on my blog. It’s kinda fun.

moving a library

The past three weeks have been absolutely insane. We moved a library. Imagine moving your house. It is, like, a billion times harder and more stressful than that. I am completely exhausted, frankly. The adrenaline rush is over and I am coming down. There isn’t much to say about it except I am glad it is over. We are in our beautiful new home and are getting settled. I love it. As I mentioned, my desk is right out in the middle of things and I am very busy all day helping people. It’s great! It’s the whole reason why I wanted to be a librarian in the first place. I especially love interacting with the kids after school. I’m very happy. I think I will take some photos tomorrow of our grand opening. Then you will be able to see it in it’s finished state. Here is a gallery of photos of the moving process.
