Something that I learned when I was a teenager is that saying good-bye is not easy but it is an inevitable part of life. People come into our lives sometimes briefly, sometimes forever. We move from place to place. We graduate high school and then college and later grad school saying good-bye to the friends we made along the way. Life moves fast and it is full of good-byes.
Good-byes are never easy.
This month is my last month at CLP-Carrick and now I must say good bye. And it will not be easy. I have seen kids grow up here from toddlers to 3rd graders; from 12 year olds to high school graduates. It has been a wonderful six years but now it is time to say good-bye.
Good-bye to all the families that have brought your children to my storytimes, Easter Egg Hunts, Halloween Haunted Houses and various other programs. I’ve enjoyed singing and playing with your children and scaring them on Halloween!
Good-bye to all the teens that have joined our TAG group along the way. Most of you have moved on already and wish you the best of luck in all you do.
Good-bye to the staff that I have worked with at Carrick over the years. I will miss you all so much!
Good-bye to all my fellow children’s librarian and teen specialists. I’ve learned so much from you. You’ll probably see me chasing my kids threw your library doors some day soon!
Good-bye to the community members, teachers and customers of the Carrick library. Thank you for your continued support for the library!
Good-bye blog readers. Thank you for reading!
I had the time of my life!
