NEW BEGINNINGS...

How many people does it take to move a library? Lots.

Well it's done. We have moved from our temporary site ....


To our new home. There was a lot of boxes involved - packing books into them- dismantling shelves- then at the other end, mantling shelves (?) and of course unpacking....


Moving house is easier. I know it's hard work but honestly - you move- and if all you do is set up a bed to sleep in, put all the boxes marked kitchen in that area - you can muddle for a few weeks (or months) before you discover where everything is.

Moving a library is more difficult. Items have to be placed correctly, in the correct area, correct shelf and even in correct order. (picture teams of shelvers perfect ordering, bless their cotton socks)

But we are home...


(well it actually has walls now) - and home we will stay. None of us want to move again. We are settled, secure and looking forward to all that a new surrounding has to offer.



This is looking into the children's area- my area- and I am so looking forward to the first Storytime tomorrow. We actually have space. We will not have to move two shelves full of DVDs and CDRoms to make room, have the children squished in and adults fighting for the few chairs we had.

New beginnings are exciting. Whether it's a new library, new home, new job, new country, new baby, new love.....all lead to amazing possibilities.

Especially if you are open to them.
