A huge relief


We still have a day left of orientation, but today was the day when all of us new hires went to our branches, to meet with our managers, to learn the ropes, and, in my case, be put to work.

It was wonderful.

I shelved. I planned a display. I met with my boss. I worked with the teens.

I loved it.

And it confirmed that I’d had no reason to worry. I’ll admit, I’d been thinking to myself since I got the job – maybe I would think that I’d want to be a librarian, and then I’d get there, and go, Oh, shit. This is awful. This is not what I thought it would be. I’ve made a terrible mistake. To know that the first day was solid, and tiring, and exhilarating – I’ve been able to let out a breath I hadn’t realized I’d been holding.

I’m going to take a shower, but I leave you with some Banned Books humor, courtesy of another favorite blog, Better Book Titles.
