As excited as I am about the new job, I’m going to really miss my colleagues in reference. This morning they had a breakfast pot luck, and was kind enough to invite me. I can’t sing their praises enough, as individuals and as a team. I admire and respect what they do. Reference librarians are some of the smartest people I’ve ever met. Their memory capacity is immense, and they’re incredible teachers – most people don’t realize that. I could never be a reference librarian for all those reasons and then some. I am ever so thankful for their kindness and friendship during my stay with them. I’ve never felt more welcome.

The days are long but, the years are short.” ~ Gretchen Rubin

a fun bunch

The best thing about being in my new office is the people. Top, left to right; Kathryn Lybarger, Daniel Naas, Bob Crovo, Jen Bartlett, Kate Seago, Kathryn Lybarger (again), Jen Bartlett (again), Laura Hall, Jeff “Podge” Rion, Peter Hesseldenz, and Miranda Hines (center). With the exception of Kate, I’ve had close, wonderful interactions with each of them over the last 11 years. It was my lucky day. I saw them all!
