Summer Reading is coming…

11 May


Whether I’m ready or not, summer reading is indeed, coming.  I’ve got WAY too much to do before it gets here, but it’ll be here before I know it.  I am always more than jealous as friends begin making plans for 1/2 day Fridays, summer vacations, and relaxing when all I can think about is the number of families streaming through the doors on any given day to a variety of programs and the endless questions about “required reading” for summer (not by the library, but usually by a school class).

But then I remember the excitement of an upcoming Kindergartner signing up for the Summer Reading Program for the first time, the look in a kid’s eye when I find the book they just “have to have”, and the not-so-reluctant choice of a picky reader when I’ve found something they might actually want to read.  These are the reasons why I do it – through the crazy, busy, insane months of summer – I know that I am making a difference in a child’s life and that’s what makes this the best job in the world.

So, I’m bracing myself, taking each day (and item on my checklist) one at a time and I’m getting ready for a summer filled with finding that just right book for that just right kid.  Brace yourselves, Miss Laura is (almost) ready!
