End of the 2nd of Orientation

Looking around the Youth Services department I see beautiful, messy desks that proudly shows the passion that each person here has for what they do. And I am so honored to be among them. I am excited to dive into their world head first and immerse myself in all things Youth Services. Next to my computer is a stack of picture books. Already I looked through the stack to see if I recognize any of the titles; I do not, so I have some reading to do later when I find the time. Looking at the calendar of events, I get excited about the knitting and crocheting events on Tuesdays, the Harry Potter day, the Gentle Plays. I’m excited not just at the prospect of participating in them, but also at the idea that I could one day help plan such an event from the ground up. There is so much to do, and I am thrilled by the prospect of being able to do it all. Perhaps I want more than I can handle, but only time will tell.

    Hi Quetzalli! It has been so wonderful getting to know you in class and working here at Skokie. I admire your fresh ideas and positive attitude! The Youth Services calendar is packed, and I feel the same way as you…how do we get to attend every single event?! Your knowledge of books and materials for young patrons will be so useful as we delve into the work here. I am looking forward to continuing working with you, especially when we get to start going out into Skokie for storytimes!

    It has been so great getting to know you thus far and adding you to my network! You’re passion for youth services and this career path has been crystal clear since our first introduction!

    I’m sad we won’t get to work together very much, but I can’t wait to see what you do in the youth services department and (hopefully) sneak away to some of your programs to see what you do!
