After a much-needed week in the Green Mountains with my family and enjoying the beauty of Lake Champlain, much waits me upon my return to my library.
My UPS delivery fellow, Mr. Brown, brought me 9 boxes of newly released books from Baker and Taylor , as well as a number of new talking books on CD from Micro Marketing. Then, there was the state of my desk and the mail which arrived during my time away. Composing the annual report. Finalizing the Fall newsletter for publication. Drafting the Board of Trustees annual fundraising letter. Preparing for meetings. Negotiating contracts. The life of a library director never stops. However, it was delightful to have a short break and rejuvenate myself.
