Ever wonder what a day in the library is like?

February 23, 2012

Check out the Library Day in the Life Project.  Started by librarian Bobbi Newman, the project is a semi-annual event during which people who work in libraries all over the world document what goes on in a typical day.

The most recent event took place from January 30 to February 5, 2012, and one of the participants was our very own Robyn Hall.  Take a look and see if you can find her posts on the wiki.
