Though it's snowing today there's not enough on the ground for the Snowman Building Contest I'd scheduled for today. We schedule months in advance, so I picked today just based on the fact that I would be scheduled to work today. We'll try again in two weeks! There weren't many people signed up, so I don't know how well it would have gone, but a few of them were unfamiliar names. I love to see unfamiliar names signed up for things. I've got a great core group of teens, but I want more!
Yesterday I was off and starting to feel the pressure from all of the things I have going on right now. A few emails and some quick poster design work and I'm ahead of the game again, though. Just needed to actually GET those things done instead of putting them off. I'm running our first ever Battle of the Books, and it starts Monday to coincide with our Winter Reading program.
What's that you say? Isn't Battle of the Books a thing for younger readers, not teens? Yes, indeed it is. Now and then I step in and do youth programs when I see a gap in our programming that no one else is willing to fill. Someone mentioned that we should have a BotB, and I loved the idea, and so it's my project now. It's for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, so this will be a good way for some future teens to get to know me!
