The next two months promise to be lively around here. I am in the final stages of weeding to prepare for the arrival of the automation team in July. Hopefully I will be out in a kayak somewhere at that time. The library is also undergoing a facelift which involves painting, replacing the circulation desk, buying new furnishings and equipment. I've lost count of the many meetings to choose colours, design the new desk area, decide on soft furnishings, and arrange for the removal of old furnishings. In addition our school website is switching to a new service so that means trainings and restructuring. Out with the old in with the new. Then we have the usual end of year things: book returns/overdues, inventory, writing the year-end report, tidying up budgets/orders, preparing calendars, handouts and displays for September. They say what doesn't kill you makes you strong!
