Some library humor…

If you’ve ever worked in a library before, you know how true this is! We can’t forget the pages – they’re important too! Advertisements

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 13

This week’s website is pretty obvious, but a great one nonetheless! It’s Pinterest! Just the other day, I was working in the Return Room (where we return and cart the library books – yeah, a no-brainer), when I heard my co-workers talking in the next room.

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 11

Wow. It’s been two weeks since I’ve posted anything. Sorry, guys. I’m a bad blogger. This week’s website is actually new to me – I just found it yesterday!

Gear up!

Getting ready for a crazy weekend! My sister graduates from college today! I can’t believe it! Luckily, the college is only about an hour and a half away, so the drive won’t be bad. She and I will be driving back in her car with lots of music. And possibly dancing. Oh, and RingPops. 🙂 …

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 2

Good morning! Here we are – another Wednesday. I hope you’re enjoying your week so far! I usually spend part of the day Wednesday getting the trash together, as the trash guys come at 5:30am (ewww) on Thursday. Every so often, getting the trash together includes cleaning out the fridge. I don’t know about you, …
