The Box Arrived
A student office aide delivered it right to me.
I've been waiting and waiting for it to arrive.
Now it is HERE.
I'm excited, anxious, giddy, and a bit overwhelmed if you want to know the truth.
My box of new genre labels finally made it to the library, so it is time to embark on my BIG springtime switcharoo.
I may have learned just enough from the first time I did this to make me KNOW what a GIANT undertaking this is---but hopefully I have a more solid plan this time around.
I began slowly this afternoon with my small box of beautiful new books from Junior Library Guild. Questions I've asked and answered and asked again a million times in my head and with co-workers.
Should I just sticker them and leave them?
How on earth am I going to re-shelve all these books?
Reshelve? What about making new SPINE labels and changing them all in the computer?
Will my space allow for this to be done easily?
Sticker first, right? Sticker them all first?
What about THAT book? What the heck kind of genre do I put THAT one in?
Despite my questions, I'm jumping in. I figure it is a bit like childbirth or adulthood in general--you really never CAN know what you are truly getting into until you are there and there is no one right way to do it despite what some folks may tell you.
So here goes! Let the adventure begin!
