We had a great week at the library. My branch had two events, one special story time and one big party. Our community also had a march on Monday that a handful of staff and volunteens participated in. It was a good week of coming together and celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of peace and equality, and remembering that some things are worth fighting for.

On the job front, I got one more rejection, and one more interview scheduled. Need to do a bit more looking around after I get this posted. Still working my way through Javascript lessons, and I attended a webinar on Caring for Photographic Collections this week. Coming up is another OhioDIG meeting at the State Library.

I had a nice couple of nights hanging out with friends this weekend. Today I’m doing some housecleaning, laundry, and maybe putting away Christmas, having received my final presents from Amazon yesterday.

On the audiobook front, I finished Green Rider. Then I listened to two excellent books recommended by my aunt, Mary who heard about them from her son, Jonathon: Binti and Binti Home by Nnedi Okorafor. Then, I went back for a bit more Mists of Avalon.

We all made it to the hotel safely. Having good music, good food, and good fun. Later today games on the lido deck with the Captain.

Work is going along quietly now with the kids back in school. Lots of events starting today to Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr and Black History Month.

No word on jobs yet. Pretty sure I didn’t get the one. Waiting for interview requests on the rest.

Reading Mists of Avalon (Bradley) and Green Rider(Britain ) I had to stop Mists because I was getting annoyed with the women.
