Countdown to new beginnings...

One month from today a new school year will begin, with new and returning middle-schoolers walking through the halls.  New backpacks, new haircuts, new tennis shoes.  Most will say they aren't excited, but only because that's the cool thing to say.  They ARE see old friends, to meet new ones, to check out the cute new guy/gal, and to come to the library.  And I'm excited to see them, too.

It never gets old for me, this new beginning. This year will be my 23rd as an educator, and I still get excited about planning new book displays, collaborating with teachers, and most of all---seeing my kiddos.  Is anything better than the student who pops their head into the library on the first day to ask if I have the sequel they are just dying to read? Oh, it's just music to my ears!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful, restful, rejuvenating summer---let's all make the most out of this last month and get ready to move into an awesome new beginning!
