On the 12 days of Christmas, my library system gave to me:
One new library catalog
Two busy self-check-outs
Three new children’s tables
Four prizes for summer reading
Five book displays
Six wonderful weekly story times
Seven freshly painted walls
Eight interesting book series
Nine outreach events
Ten chairs in our conference room
Eleven special preschool programs
Twelve happy children (and many, many more!)
While some of these numbers are only a brief representation of the total figure, other quantities are right on target. Regardless of the number, all of these examples are just some of the gifts I received while working at our community branch library in 2013.
The highlight, of course, was sharing time with the people, both customers and staff members, I have been blessed to work with this year.
What has been the greatest gift you have received at work this year? What upcoming opportunity are you most anticipating in 2014? Please share in the comments below!
