Well, boys and girls, it’s nearing the end of August, and although most people would say it’s “warm,” I say it’s hot. I am not tied to a school year, and in fact, since I’m retired, I’m not really tied to any kind of “calendar.” Still, late August gets me thinking about summer ending and getting “back”. . . to what, I’m not sure.
If you’re in a school or academic setting, how is your library preparing for the new school year? If you’re in a public library, you’re probably experiencing the transition from summer reading programs and events to a focus more on school year programs and focus for youth.
However you’re spending these last days of August, enjoy and celebrate them. For those of us in the Midwest, it means my favorite season, autumn, is not far behind. And that is something to celebrate!
