Once again, this month I want to thank both Linda Heese and Kathryn Gillis for carrying out Library duties while I was off traveling last month – Many thanks, Ladies!!!
I’m not sure whether it is good or bad, but I have managed to spend the Library Budget for this year, so no new books have been added to our Collection this month. Not to fear though next year’s budget will be available soon. And, I have a list of member requests to fill so there will be lots of exciting, new books to borrow in January.
As you are aware the two-year Guild Librarian position will be up for grabs in February. The plusses of this position are that you get to order the books that YOU like (and get to review them before anyone else!) And you get to meet and get to know other members – what could be better? As a relatively new member of LGQG I have really enjoyed being the Librarian. It is not a terribly onerous position – maybe taking one day/month in total in addition to manning the Library at Guild meetings, where it is advantageous to have an additional person helping. If you are considering taking on this fun position and have any questions about it, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
