I am starting something new this week. Z goes back to school on Monday and I will be going as well. I am going to be volunteering in the elementary school library! I will be helping on one afternoon a week with a class of first grade students. The last library experience I had was when I was 15 and I spent a summer putting an entire junior high school card catalog onto a new-fangled computer system they were going to start using. I thought it was fun to see every book that was in the entire library. Yes, I am a raging nerd.
I'm sure this will be much more fun than months of data entry and I can't wait to meet the kids. If it goes well, I might actually do a second day each week with some second graders. This is a chance to get some experience hours if I decide to get my master's degree in library science but I think the best part is just teaching kids to love books!
I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow night.
Excited and a little nervous,
