Thanksgiving Break?

Today began quite briskly with both weather and students, the latter working to finish last minute assignments before break and the former causing definite annoyance. As the day progressed patron traffic slowed dramatically, the printer rested, and computers became available; unfortunately the snow has not followed this trend. I have just returned to my office to resume work on a LibGuide! (and eat lunch)after sending a grateful student worker home early and covering the end of her afternoon shift in the IRC. A quick conversation with my GA, granting her permission to leave early if weather conditions worsen and IRC traffic remains non-existent, completes the last of my administrative tasks.

Thanksgiving break begins today after night classes or a student's last class, whichever comes first. It has been a long arduous stretch between Labor Day and Thanksgiving, break gives us all an opportunity to be thankful for an abundance of things and recharge for the last week of classes and finals. The library has already prepared to do its part by offering extended hours (the library as a place) and a holiday open house with music, fellowship, and food. And of course, there will be special holiday treats for my student workers.

Happy Thanksgiving!
