I cannot believe that this is my last post. It seems like only yesterday that I was writing my first post about how my training for the reference desk was going. This semester has been truly wonderful and I have learned so much. Through the many projects that I have taken part in and my final project that I designed myself, it has been an amazing opportunity.
As a senior employee of the library, I was asked to pick a book to be plated in my honor. It was certainly a hard decision to pick only one book! In the end, I chose Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I know that it seems a little cliché, but this book has influenced me as a reader and as a student. I, like many of my generation, read this book as a young child. I have always been an avid reader and this book remained one of my favorites throughout the years. Additionally, I had to opportunity to read this book last semester in a class entitled The Golden Age of Children’s Literature. That class meant a lot to me and helped me solidify my plans for after graduation.
With that being said, in the fall I will be attending Simmons College in Boston for a dual master’s degree program in Library Science and Children’s Literature. I am very excited about this next step and I know that the knowledge and skills that I learned at Musselman Library will help me as I continue my education. Thank you so much to the Reference Department for all your support this semester !
