Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf
When Britt first asked me to contribute to National Library Week at her blog, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about my own experience volunteering at the Marion Sutherland Kirby Library, the local library in my town. By the time I was in eighth grade, I was reading books by the dozen, and because of that, my mom thought it would be a great idea if I applied to volunteer at the library. I, being the book lover that I am, thought that was the coolest idea ever. I have been volunteering there ever since, and now that I am just about to finish eleventh grade, that will make it about three years. To be honest, I have loved nearly every second of it. It has been fun seeing the inner workings of a library. Who knew that it involved so much work as well as contribution from volunteers as well as hired workers? I have also made some good friends working there as well as meet some fabulous librarians as well. Plus it doesn’t hurt that I sometimes get the first chance to read the new YA books there :) In all, I adore my local library, and just about every library out there. So maybe in honor of National Library Week, why don’t you go to the library and thank your local librarians and volunteers? Trust me; they’re an essential part of your library experience.
