Good ideas for school libraries: 8. Be inspired

There are the most wonderful essays to read among the winners of a contest on the topic: What I wish everyone knew about librarians.
.
Read them here.  Be inspired.
.
And then, write your own version.  As a celebration of what you do every day, and why, and how you feel about it.  Focus on the positive - acknowledge the things that get you down, by all means, but write something that will inspire you about the work you do every day, and how you do it, and the things that are good, or funny, or just the-way-things-are.  The contest's over, and maybe the piece you write is going to be just for you.  But the very act of writing it is a gift to yourself.  Do it.

Link found on Pimp My Library.  Go take a squizz at the blogroll.  Over there on the right.  Look at what all those good people have been writing.  Click on something!

Congratulations. I think your blog is inspirational. I check regularly to see what you are up to. I love your renovation ideas. I'm a bit surprised that there are so few comments, but I hope you keep blogging.
