Yesterday was my orientation for the new gig...my first day is Wed 8.11
It was a great day. Everyone was crazy nice...could this really be happening, I thought.
I sat next to one of our new librarians...before she arrived, I pictured a 60-something lady with white hair pulled back in a bun...um, yeah I was REALLY wrong...shame on me. She is actually mid-20s (guessing), with long blonde hair and really nice. My how the librarian role has changed since I was in school...it's actually a "teaching" position (neat!!). After we had our delicious group lunch, she showed me one of her favorite children's books... "Do Unto Otters" It is super cute...and of course I had to add it to my Amazon Wish List for E to read someday. I think I found a great new resource for getting good book recommendations, childrens and adult books! Hooray!!
I also found out I'll get a little moolah to spend on my "office"...you know, like teachers get for their rooms!! Wowser..how awesome!! And for those of you on Twitter, you saw the lovely gift basket each of the new employees received. Awesome!! It was a great day!
I'm really excited to get in there and get started.
