A Good Librarian Day

Sometimes you have those days where you are just so excited to be doing what you're doing. Today was one of those days - a good librarian day. Today I went with two of my staff members to a Mother Goose on the Loose training workshop by Dr. Betsy Diamant Cohen. It was absolutely fabulous and got us really fired up to offer programs to the under-2 crowd. If you have the opportunity to go to a MGOL training, I highly recommend it. Parents of babies, if your library offers a Mother Goose on the Loose program, you should really check it out.

Then this evening I went to a meeting of a local homeschooling group. They had invited many community organizations to set up tables and it was a great opportunity to speak with homeschooling families and get some feedback from them.

I'll have more in-depth posts about both of these things later. I just had to check in and tell you how lucky I am to have a fabulous job that I love!

For now, I'm off to pick out which posts to highlight for my Book Blogger Appreciation Week award nominations. Yes, that is plural... I've been nominated for Most Eclectic Taste and for Best Kidlit Blog. Even to be nominated is a huge honor, so THANK YOU!
