Welcome to a librarian's online musings on libraries, literature and information media.

What librarians do on vacation.

Leave a comment

Librarians read while on vacation.  They try to make a dent in their reading pile, the one which teeters precariously on their bedside tables. Yes, we read. In case there was ever any doubt.  Or we nap in lawn chairs by a very pretty lake,  with our half-open books.

I will admit to being dog tired from an exhausting 365 days. And finishing up my job.  And packing up my house.  And preparing for the move to our new home. And planning out my course of action for my new job.

To sit by the shores of Lake Champlain,  watching beautiful sunsets over the Adirondack mountain, listening to the water lap against the rock wall and the wind rustling the poplar tree branches is the most peaceful therapy I can imagine.  My husband and son enjoy seeking their fishing spots in Lake Champlain.  Miss Lily enjoys the holiday; the wind in her fur while sunning herself on the veranda.  Her ears prick up when wildlife appear on the property.  It is a quiet and peaceful time.

I have been asked what do we read while on holiday?  This year,  I will admit to a huge stack of magazines: Real Simple, Good House Keeping, Martha Stewart,   HGTV Magazine, Make, This Old House and an Ethan Allen catalogue.   I also brought along a  few ARCs collected from last week’s adventure at Book Expo.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to my community. I love books, reading with my son, properly placed apostrophes, canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
