Library Grand opening

I’ve been largely MIA from my blog since my boyfriend came up to visit for the weekend. Although its always fun seeing him, it does get in the way of my reading binges. The literary highlights of our weekend consist of a new library grand opening on Saturday. This is one of the libraries that I worked on as part of my internship during my Library and Information Science school career for a good year and a half. It was amazing to see the library so crammed with people, lines spanning across the entire width of the branch of people waiting to fill out library card applications, or check out materials. It was incredibly exciting and validating to see all of my team’s hard work on the shelves in shiny, glossy hardcovers and paperbacks. All those hours constructing various excel spreadsheets, budgeting formula’s, tracking shelf space, individually choosing titles,which I didn’t get to do, but I did ensure that the lists were sent back to the book vendors, finally paid off. Its great to see such a love for books in a large metropolitan city.

  1. What a gorgeous library! And how wonderful to be part of something that’s going to have such a huge impact on the community for years to come.

  2. It was an amazing experience. I can only hope other library science students get a chance to work on a project like this at some point in their library careers.
