This week was so much fun! I had a blast! On Monday we were really busy. I had to work at the front desk, so the most that I got done was shelving a few movies. On Tuesday, I shelved some books with another girl that works at the library. I also got to help with the childrens' story time. It was so fun, the little kids are always so excited to be there. For the story time, the childrens' librarian read them stories with a green theme, for example, there were two stories about frogs. After the story time, the kids have a craft time. For the crafts (they got to do two!) they made a little shamrock headband and they got to plant a flower in a cup. They were so cute in their little headbands! (I think that I would like to be a children's librarian or a school librarian.) On Wednesday, it was St. Patrick's Day so the girls and I put on green wigs and one put on a green hat and we wore those all day! It was so funny. Most of the people just laughed when they saw us. I worked at the front desk that day because they needed me there, but I shelved some more books and movies as well. It was a fun week, I can't wait to see what happens next week!

This week, I worked at the front desk for a while. I also shelved some books, quite a few books actually. I also helped the childrens' librarian get things together for story time on Tuesday. That was what I did on Monday. On Tuesday, I helped with story time. I thought I was going to have to do it by myself. The childrens' librarian had to work at one of the other libraries' that day so I was going to help. Well one of the other librarians had a doctors appointment that morning and that's why I thought I might have to do it alone, but she got back just in time to read to the children. I did help though and the children had a great time listening and doing a craft after the stories were read. Tuesday was a fun day. On Wednesday, I worked at the front desk and I shelved movies for the first part of the day. That afternoon, one of the other librarians and I went to read to the elderly people at the nursing home in Columbia. It was fun, those ladies and gentlemen are so nice and they have fun listening to us read to them. I hope it brightens their day, it does mine. Well, that's what I did this week, I can't wait to see what happens this next week! (This picture was acquired from the librarys facebook page.)

This week was a fun week. On Monday, I shelved books, quite a few books if I do say so myself. I shelved a bunch of fiction books and some non-fiction books. I liked that, it was at my own pace and I didn't have to interupt my shelving flow. It was pretty nice and quiet that day as well. On Tuesday, I worked at the front dest for a short while but at about two until six I helped the children's librarian for the Read Across America for Dr. Seuss' birthday. It was really fun. The kids read any book of their choosing for ten minutes. After they were done with their ten minutes worth of reading, they could get a red ribbon that said #1 Reader, a bookmark, a free book, make their own wacky hat and refreshments were offered for the children as well. It was a really good day. The little kids did an awesome job of reading for the ten minutes. Their hats were also very cute. I enjoy interacting with the kids, they get very involved in those books. On Wednesday, two of the librarians had to run errands and be at the Prentiss and Bassfield libraries so they were gone for the morning and most of the afternoon so I had to fill in at the desk. It's not bad working at the front desk, but I do enjoy working in other parts of the library. All in all this was a fun week! I can't wait until next week!
