As the only full time Librarian at my library, I feel the Summer Burn Out a little faster than the other staffers here, but it's hitting us all hard. We're doing more programs than ever before and we've had more families than ever take part in them. It's great! It's exactly the boost we needed. But it's exhausting.
I'm counting down the days until my long weekend away. I'm also counting down the days until our end of summer party. But at the same time, summer in New Hampshire is so short that I'd hate to wish it away.
It's been a crazy 4 weeks and we have another 4 weeks to go. Wish me luck and maybe you'll hear from me soon... but more than likely you'll hear from me again in September.
