Okay, so I already have gainful employment, but now I'm extra-gainfully-employed since I am officially the new University House Librarian!
I was offered the position yesterday! I start training in June and then I'm on my own in July until June 2014 working 8 hours a week. It's going to be a seriously busy year -- I'm not quitting my job at Nordstrom -- but I think this is going to be such a great experience. The community itself is lovely and all the people that I've met so far who live there have great stories to tell (one eloped while she was in college!) but I'm really going to get to do everything to keep library functioning. Acquisitions, cataloging, weeding, maintenance, readership advisory, publicity, library committee...
I am SO excited. I have to clean my whole apartment before I start! (I might not have a whole lot of extra time for cleaning with a second job...) Clean home, fresh start, and it's finally starting to really look like Summer in gloomy Seattle! Today is good.
