They look really nice stacked up like that, don't they?
Typically I "let" my high school student worker unpack the boxes because it is non-specialized manual labor. But, I got started on the boxes and my student worker didn't show up. I unpacked them all and stored the boxes in the back room.
Those ten boxes of "rocks" filled up 7 and a half shelves. I have multiple copies of some books for next year's book competitions. I will be working with them through next week. I already have some of my avid readers giving me faces about wanting to read some of those books. I am a little bit like Gollum--My precious, my precious....until I finish processing them.
And lest you think my library life is all fun and games, this box arrived the same day as all those books. Yes, I am having another book fair in March. It is time to start getting ready for it.
