As my internship comes to a close, I think a lot about what I have learned as well as everything I want to continue learning. My last day is just like any other, except much quieter. I realize just how much I’ve grown through this internship, as I sit at the Youth Services desk and don’t have a knot in my stomach each time a patron approaches. I have spent much of today poking around on the SIRSI system trying to gain a better understanding of it. I intend to continue my work in the world of public libraries, so I want to make sure I can enter a library job knowing how to use the system. I have become used to knowing when to get up and clean the children’s area, and when to restock the displays. I think about all of the projects, big and small I wish I had completed while I was here including doing a true reorganizing and fixing of the easy juvenile section, all the way up to getting traction to begin a history and literature program for teens and young adults. Each moment here has been an experience, most of them overwhelmingly positive and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me in the public library sector.
