I'm back!!! For those of you that have wondered what the heck I've been up to, I've been engrossed with setting up my new home. I'm now serving as a Library Media Specialist at a high school. It's exiting work but challenging. Here's a short list of tasks presented to me over the last couple of months.
- weeding the existing collection
- packing up the wanted books
- waiting for the construction crew to rebuild the library and computer lab
- working with furniture and book vendors
- providing in-service for the staff on library services and databases
- unpacking and shelving the books
- arranging upcoming speaker series/guests
During this time, the Library Media Center has been closed. I'm so thankful that I'm able to do this without a sense of urgency...something every librarian wishes for right? Am I a solo Library Media Specialist? Yes, I am and as the kids say, 'I'm going to do the *amm thing' and connect teens with books. Everyday I have a group of teens that inquire about circulation of books and use of the online resources. Every evening I'm exhausted from work, but it's worth it. I just can't wait to open this much needed 'peaceful' haven for teens and expose them to a little sunshine.
Bye for now, K.C.
