The week of orientation is over, and my brain is full to bursting. But I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a Monday morning more (in fact, I should say Monday midday, since my shift starts at 12:30 on Monday). We had training in storytimes today, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Speaking of, I’ve recently found a terrific blog that details some equally terrific storytimes – but it’s also quite intimidating to know that there are librarians this dedicated and capable out there. Katie Fitzgerald is a Washington, D.C.-area librarian, and her blog, Story Time Secrets, has given me some fabulous ideas. She even plays the ukelele! Who plays the ukelele these days? She’s my hero.
