|Thinking about weeding|
the juvenile nonfiction.
- The real craziness begins this week. Last week was just pretend-craziness. School here started very late - after Labor Day - so my outreach isn't starting until this week. I'm also taking next week off so I had a lot of prep work to do.
- Data. Daaaattaaaa. The official 2014 data was released today. Of course, I already had my happy data day dance with the preliminaries last summer, but I like to look again.
- Service Population: 24,484
- Children's materials circulation: 121,079
- Children's e-content (which has nothing to do with me): 378
- Children's programs: 364
- Children's program attendance: 12,282
- Teen programs (I count school visits): 24
- Teen attendance: 456
- My first visit to the after school community center for middle schoolers. There was a fairly small group there and I only checked out about 3 things. It would work a lot better if I had a mobile hotspot, but I don't think it's worth it for just this monthly group. If I ever started doing books by the pool in the summer though....the kids were absolutely enthralled with the Osmo though.
- First visit back to one of my preschool/daycares. The threes and fours are so tiny at the beginning of the year!
- Thursday I frantically rushed through all the misc. things I could think of that would need to be done, Friday I was gone all day at a workshop and then...vacation!
