Librarian's Lounge - March 2022

It’s almost spring! Although I’m not usually one to wish the days away, I’m ready for weather that’s warm enough to sit outside and enjoy some time reading in the sunshine and fresh air. Until then I’ll employ a little technological wizardry to imagine myself reading by the sea or with the songbirds (see the Stress-Free Fridays post from July 31, 2020 for details!)

What I’m Listening To

Librarian's Lounge - February 2022

I began my last post talking about the snowstorm that was heading our way. That storm turned out to be just an appetizer for the one that dumped over two feet of snow on the area just before we turned the calendars to February. If you don’t mind venturing out in the snow and ice (and it’s safe for you to travel!), stop by the library this month to leave a love letter to the library or pick up a blind date with a book.

Librarian's Lounge - January 2022

As I’m writing this, the first big snowstorm of the season is heading our way. I’d be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to it. After all, a snowstorm is a perfect excuse to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book!

But it’s not all cozy winter reading over here. A new year means planning for new and exciting things at the library. With that in mind, this month’s post is going to be a little different. Instead of reflecting, I’m looking ahead and setting some resolutions for myself as a library user. 

Librarian’s Lounge - October 2021

Happy Fall! Thanks for stopping by the Librarian’s Lounge this month. September brought me some excellent books and tasty treats. I’m excited to share them with you today, but I want to hear from you, too! Did you read a book last month that I should add to my TBR? Did a book or resource from AFL help you learn something new? Share all the details in the comment box at the end of this post.
