This week at the library; or, Everything old is new again

What's happening
I don't even want to think about Monday. It was both extremely busy and extremely...weird. I had a disappointingly small turnout for book club and we had to postpone anime club to next week. The parking lot is not yet done, I have several huge projects on hand, and I am just tired. I went home early on Friday to listen to webinars, organize grants, and lay out the long-term plan for the children's area.
