Yesterday was my last day for the year, and it certainly ended in a rush. I repeatedly told teachers it was fine to keep whatever they needed until the last school day. Wow, when they did that it was great for relationship building and making them feel welcome. However, I didn't think about all the books that would show up needing to be reshelved. Whew!! Foolishly I thought I would end the year with things all neatly put away, and that would be a first. No, that didn't happen. I don't mind at all though now that I realize what I've done. This year we had lots and lots of new teachers in the building, and I mean new to the building AND rookies. So, many people had no idea who I am or what I do. I spent all year trying to build those relationships. It paid off in the end. My relaxed and open attitude seemed to make everyone just love the library!! I look forward to building on this experience next year. My mood? I'm relaxed and content to have complete a job well done.
