I have been in this position for eight months and I am finally have confidence with what I am doing for the teens. Even though at times the programs I created can be stressful, I am rewarded by the outcome.
The Summer Reading Program for Richmond Public Library is over and man did it go by so fast?!
Nikki Giovanni @ RPL-Speaking to Teens
On June 27th, I had the honor to meet poet, Nikki Giovanni a couple of weeks ago as part of our Summer Reading program for teens. I also got the chance to speak to the crowd before she presented, which I was really nerves, but made it through. (the duties of a YA Librarian!)
At the end of the program she answered questions from the audience and did a book signing.

I had many successful programs over all, and I am proud that I am engaging the community.
