Elaine and I dashed out to St Pius yesterday afternoon to talk about Life, Work and Literacy.
There couldn’t really be a more fitting topic for two Librarians! It was interesting to find out what each class thought the job of a Librarian involved. They all came up with good examples of aspects of the job: shelving books; stamping them out; chasing up overdue loans etc. However, we explained we don’t do any of these things, we HAVE done them but we do completely different things in our current roles.
After chatting about our actual jobs we also spoke about books which have been important to us throughout our lives from Elaine’s craft book which helped her to make a little felt mouse when she was 7 to my Assassin’s Creed Official Guides which helped me to learn how to play my first computer game at 59!
We were truly delighted with how well each class engaged and asked us loads of questions.
Thank you for the invite and for such a warm (quite literally) reception.
