  • Worked 32.5 hours; 19 hours on the desk; 3 programs
  • 8 hours off (holiday)
  • 2-3 hours work at home (emails and collection development)
  • I'm not sure why I thought it was a good idea to do two conferences in quick succession, along with our annual big collaborative event and the art show... it seemed like a good idea at the time? Anyways, I'm done with CE for the year now (except two local things).
  • We had about 200 people come through for the art show Monday night and then on Tuesday all the 4K directors came in for set-up for the big train party. I'm desperately trying to finish another chunk of weeding before I'm gone-ish next week.
  • Feeling a little overwhelmed when I think about what still needs to be done:
    • update field trips (still waiting for some teachers to schedule their classes)
    • update summer reading materials and send to the school to print
    • update and add to activities we give away for summer reading prizes
    • summer newsletter
    • finish staff schedule - I'm waiting to see if I need to hire another teen to fill in the schedule
    • plan sewing maker workshops coming up
    • update STEM calendar for the summer
    • waiting on grant money to order LOTG books for summer, including Spanish, and some big chunks of juvenile fiction and graphic novels
    • write-up and publicity for Walmart grant - I think we will finally start open storyroom in May
    • plan summer programs, including new maker workshops and art programs
    • recruit and schedule teen volunteers
