How to Have Fun at Work

We seem to have a lot of fun at our library.

For instance, we have a regular staff storytime. Louise, our Social Media Coordinator, chooses picture books and reads aloud to us. During our last session she read Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beatty and Kid Sheriff and the Terrible Toads by Bob Shea (complete with western accent!). We sat on the floor as she read the stories and showed us the pictures. We applauded. Then we all helped each other stand back up.
