Xin nian kuai le!

Well the Chinese New Year holiday has come and gone and we're back at work on a short 3 day week. The thought of coming back to work yesterday evening was not appealing (I was enjoying my time off too much!) but now that I'm back it's fine. I've missed my kids. 

I was right about the John Agee books not staying on the shelves for long. I think they are all checked out now and it's only 10.30am. I think I should order some more! 

I've been working on coming up with little projects to improve the space in the library and I think that this will be my next one: 

I'm going to hang it up in my Infant section. I think it will look really lovely and hopefully the kids will like it too. 

I was talking to some friends at lunch yesterday about my career and how I had up until this point only worked in libraries serving patrons who were 16+ (sixth and university). They were surprised when I said that now I'm working in primary I would never go back to high school/adult libraries. There is something just so wonderful about working with little kids that makes this job just so much fun. It's hard too don't get me wrong, but I always leave with with a smile on my face and a bounce in my step. It's the same in the mornings too. How many people can say that about what they do. I am very lucky.
