One of the things I love most about my job is that I am involved in a variety of tasks, which allows me to learn and exercise many different skills. Lately, my focus has been on creating exhibits for the state bicentennial which will be on display for the rest of the year. This has been an incredibly rewarding challenge. With each exhibit, I feel I am learning so much, and the exhibits are improving as a result. One that I am particularly pleased with is the exhibit on World War II.

Last summer we hosted a series of educational programs at the library geared toward new and young adults that focused on the drudgery of adulthood, like laundry, social media, home maintenance, and personal finance.
