Spring has sprung. At least, the first day of spring is “officially” here, according to the calendar. In Wisconsin, that means slightly warmer temps. . . on some days. On another day, we might get snow! (But I digress.) But we do forge ahead and do “spring things” anyway. For example, on Saturday, our condo association is having a block clean up. We’ll walk around our neighborhood and pick up trash, stray branches, leaves, and the like.
The advent of spring is a good time to take a look around your library and see what needs sprucing up. Want to rearrange some areas? Buy or re-purpose some furniture? Weed the collection or a portion of it?
In the spirit of spring spruce-up, I’ve been sprucing up A Life in Libraries a little bit. You may have noticed from some of my posts I’ve been taking a Blogging 101 course, which has pushed me to make some changes. I’ve done little things like change my cover photo, and background, and bigger things like adding a blogroll, and creating a Facebook fan page. (Look over there to the right, and click on “Like on Facebook:”) My plan is to share links to other great posts there, as well as A Life in Libraries posts.
And, in April, I’m introducing a new blog feature, “Library Photo of the Month.” At the beginning of each month, I’ll post a photo of a library. It may be a photo I take myself, or one I find online, or one someone shares with me; it may be an interior or exterior shot; and it may be current or historical. (If you have a photo you’d like me to use, send it my way!) This feature may morph slightly as I go along.
How are your sprucing up your life, your home, your blog, your library for spring?
