We opened to the public today and the neighborhood’s enthusiasm for it was really cool. After so many weeks getting ready it was strange to finally let people in (it was strange enough once I wasn’t the only library person working there) and have them examine us and take out our books. It remains to be seen if my photo will end up in any of the papers tomorrow, but I did my small part to make it seem like a fun, cool place to hang out.
I’ve sort of been reading lately, I only have one YA book that needs reviewing and I’ve read a few adult, non-fiction books as well. It will be interesting to see how working with and supervising teen librarians will be different than working directly with teens myself, even though I’ll be covering their desk fairly often and even doing a video game program here and there.
