I have some bittersweet news from The Middle.
I have moved to a different position here at GEPL. Don't worry, I'll still be doing awesome programming for middle school kids, but I won't be your designated Middle School Librarian.
I started middle school programming in 2013 and jumped right into running our repeating programs like Half-Day Hang Outs and Middle School Volunteers. I have enjoyed hosting our After-Hours NERF Wars and Harry Potter nights.
I have met some amazing middle schoolers as Middle School Librarian, but I think the part I liked least was only getting four years with you guys.
I've accepted a position as Youth Technology Librarian here in the Youth Department, so make sure to look out for amazing technology-based programs and come chat with me at the reference desk. I'll still read middle school fiction, so I'd love to talk books with you any time.
Just remember, this isn't "goodbye" so much as "see you later." I know, that was super corny, but it's true.
See you around!
