I don't have a copy of the formal photo and I haven't even checked if it was published in the local paper. It was nice to hear our bosses talk about us and say how much they appreciate the time we put in the library. Deep down, though, all I wanted to do was beg the people in the room to give me a real job, haha.
That rounded gold thing is a chocolate shaped like the seal of the City of Ontario.
Typically, this time of the year there's a brunch for all the library volunteers in Southern California, but it's been cancelled because there's no budget for it anymore. Last year's was really interesting and fun.
Volunteering is really rewarding on itself but it was nice to be somehow acknowledged; I'm happy with the experience I've gotten and the people I've met.
And before I leave, let me show you a few more photos. Here are some of the book covers that have caught my eye. Forgive the quality, some of them were taken with my cell phone.
I felt tempted to buy a couple of these just because of their pretty cover, but I have so many books to read at home that I figured it was not worth it yet.
Do you ever buy books just because of their cover?
Yesterday I did buy a few things, but they're all non-fiction. I couldn't help getting my hands on these tour guides and magazines.
Have you ever checked if your local library has a book sale area? If you haven't, you totally should! You'll find amazing bargains and the money raised goes to back to the library ;).
Happy midweek, everybody! ;D
