I was perfectly dry-eyed until Phyllis showed the mini-Phyllis that Stanley made for her–it got me & I’m not even sure why.

We’re doing the “Dig in..” theme, so for the young ones I’m reading Creepy Carrots. I’ll book talk Gregor the Overlander for upper elementary and highlight a zombie program for the older kids.

I get to work with preschoolers through teenagers. It IS super fun!

My day was great! I’m a children’s librarian at a public library. Every year I get to harass teachers to let me come in to their classes and do a summer reading club pitch to the kids. It dawned on me this morning that I hadn’t started this harassment and might be cutting things a little close for the end of the school year. Right when I was about to panic, I got a call from a principal from one school asking me when I wanted to come visit and after that I got calls from teachers from others schools asking when I was coming–like they really want me to come & value what I do. It was amazing.

I’m looking at a sleeping patron right now. I’m not waking him unless he snores, starts drooling on the chair, or wets himself (pro tip: never sit on soft seating in a library).

Me too, but it was the commercials that blasted me half-way to heart attack.

Had to go to a county commissioner’s meeting for work today. One of the commissioners told me his wallet was missing and then said “April Fools!”…OK.
