Me So Tired!

I love my job, but boy, am I exhausted! The Summer Reading Program will wear out even the most hard-core of librarians. I just finished hosting [along with kick-butt practicum student Ofilia and fellow librarian David—aka. Pola Baya] a Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero party for teens 12-18. We had 71 teens show up and hang out with each other for over 2 hours at the library. We’re breaking Frisco records here, people—maybe even world records!

Seriously, though, allow me to elucidate the changes we’re seeing this summer compared to last, mainly due to the awesome new facility we moved into last September. A mere two days into our 2007 SRP, we surpassed the total number of teens registered for the entire 2006 SRP. I have to double check, but I believe that as of this week we’ve tripled the number of last year’s teen registrants. Check out what we have scheduled for the young adults of Frisco here. Can’t wait to rock out on my keyboard next week for Blues 101!

I’m too wiped to even begin a discussion on the SRP for kids 18 months-5th grade. Let’s just say, we’ve been very, very, very busy. Very busy. Click here to see what we have in store for the little ones this summer.

Time to nestle in bed with Paul Zindel’s classic, The Pigman. Ahhh, books make me feel so good after a long day—even the sad ones!

    Whew! That is a lot. This time of year is always so fun/tiring. I get my rest with iced tea and a book or magazine on the porch in the evenings. (Lately, I’m catching up on Vogue and launching into Prom Nights from Hell, which have been proving to be just what my tired brain needs.)

    I love the girl with the headphones on the teen page, incidentally. I think I may want to *be* the girl with the headphones.
