Next week I start a new adventure. My kids are growing up and I’m heading back to work. What better place for a Book Club Mom to land than the local library!
They don’t use card catalogs at the library anymore, but I’d be ready if they did because I passed the Dewey Decimal test.
I may be seen pushing one of these:
How cool if it looked like this!
If I get really good, maybe I can join the library cart drill team and compete in the world championship! There really is such a thing. The American Library Association has sponsored the event for several years. Click here to read this interesting article from The New York Times, “Dancing With the Book Carts.”
Most of all I’m excited to work in a place I have visited many, many times with my kids when they were little. And I’m looking forward to getting more involved in our community.
I’ll still be reading and posting book reviews. I’m sure I will get some great book recommendations at work!
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

That’s wonderful news and good luck. If I had it to do all over again, I’d major in Library Science, as there’s no better place to be than a library!
This is wonderful! I’m excited for you. The very first thing I ever remember wanting to be was a librarian. No surprise then that my love of books has never faded. Best of luck to you!
Congratulations! Indeed very cool, look forward to some of your book recommendations.
Thanks Melanie, I’m excited! Thanks too for stopping by!
Good stuff, congratulations! 🙂
Thank you Darcy, and thanks for visiting!
This is so cool! Good for you. I like just looking at your library picture!
Thanks! It was time to reinvent myself!
Congratulations and have lots of fun! Unfortunately librarians are being replaced more and more by volunteer staff here in the UK which is a pity as it is such a skilled job and one with many responsibilities.
Thanks Annika. I don’t have an MS in Library Science so I’m limited unless I get one, but I was impressed with how much more a library is than a stack of books. Lots to learn!
Wow! Sounds like my dream job! Good luck. 🙂
Thank you Lisa – lots of chances to find new books and hear what people are saying!
Congratulations, what a fantastic job to have. If you ever make dancing with book carts, I’ll be rooting for you 🙂
Thanks! I’d better practice if I hope to make the team!
Congratulations on landing the perfect job.
How fun! That’s great news. Best of luck. 😀 Enjoy!
Thank you – first day this Thursday!
