When I went to work my first shift at the library after Christmas I was lucky enough to be greeted with the lovely phrase “there are multiple gifts in your locker.” Yep, each of the library staff members who don’t have their own office or cubicle (though I have in the past) have lockers. And naturally I don’t use mine but I forget that other staff use it as a mailbox of sorts so I need to be reminded to check it. The most recent gift dropped off (given by my supervisor and the person who reminded me to check my locker in the first place) was a beautiful hand-knit, lavender sweater for Baby Girl, which I’m too lazy to take a picture of but was very happily received. (There can never be too many baby girl clothes IMHO.) The second gift I did take a photo of because I had to show them to someone who’d really appreciate them:
Personal book labels. Cool, huh? I’ve seen these around before but can’t remember where. Does anyone know a company and/or website who prints these? What a fantastic idea. I may want to order some more because four is just not enough.
And continuing on this random note, we recently moved into a new house which gave me a chance to reorganize my books. Since it may be my only opportunity instead of alphabetically I went roughly by color, and here’s a sample of how they turned out:
Personally, *I love*. Best of all I was able to keep books by the same author or in the same series together without wrecking the color scheme, which surprised me. I’m not sure how long this arrangement will last but glancing fondly at my shelves as I pass is becoming a habit to which I’m quickly growing attached.
