HEY-O! I’m back. I will begin a new job as Youth Services Librarian at the Livingston Parish Library on Monday, Feb 3 and I will be in charge of the Children and Young Adult sections at the Watson Branch (pictured above) located just outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I am super excited to meet all my co-workers and get back to the real world. Hanging out with baby J every day is pretty fun (because he is basically the most adorable chubby little thing in the world) but it is very clear to me that I could never hack it as a stay at home mom. I am so ready to get back to my library life full of books, displays, crafts and events! I will be reporting back on all the happenings at this new locale real soon. Stay tuned!
It’s been a long time since I updated this blog but I just had to get on here to show off this amazing picture the teens from my old library drew for me. It is so sweet and MAN I wish I owned that dress. I would wear it everyday.
I will be finished with my MLIS degree in literally ~*days*~ and I can’t wait to find and start a new job! I’ll be back on here all the time with cool events and crafts to share.
'Till then! <3
Since I am preggo and have recently decided to take a work break to finish up my MLIS at the University of Illinois and begin the job hunting process- please check out the new blog, LIBRARY WONDERLAND, to continue following the happenings at the lovely Oconee County Library.
I’ll be back one day soon with tons of cool things happening at a great new library!
DIY Carnival at Oconee County Library!
I came back to volunteer at the DIY Carnival for the library. It was a lot of fun planning an event and then not having to do any of the prep-work-haha! It was our SUMMER READING KICK-OFF event and each DIY station correlated with an upcoming event for the summer. Some boothes we had were Indie Movie Trivia, Knitting, Painting and of course, my table- the Make Your Own Zine station!
Note: Picture of me and my very pregnant belly in the Photo Booth!
Lonna’s last day/TAB meeting! :( There was cookie cake and cupcakes and pizza rolls and so many yums.
The PAC-MAN display Lonna made at the Athens-Clarke County Library during her internship. The last one!
A farewell present from Lonna to Oconee County Library and her teens! <3
The GIANT TARDIS Lonna made at the Athens-Clarke County Library during her internship. More displays to come over the month of April!
A fare-well present made by Lonna. A zine that talks about all her favorite events and teens, plus the amazing staff she has come to know and love while working at Oconee County Library.
