When I Grow Up....
Have you thought about what you want to do when you grow up? I am in my mid-50s and wonder that all the time lately! I have a nice career in public relations and marketing. I’ve worked for some great non-profits now and before I came to the library. A few years were spent as a free-lancer, writing articles for the Oneida Daily Dispatch and some other publications. Still, I often spend time thinking about my retirement and just what I will do during that time of my life.
While, I’m sure “writing” will be a part of that, painting or another creative endeavor might be fun. I might even take up another type of hobby like knitting or scrapbooking. Playing Bridge might be an activity that I will be interested in learning to do. Needless to say, I know I will want to keep learning about our history and new trends and developments in technology, the arts, education and our environment.
The library is a perfect resource for all of those activities! We have two writing groups that meet here at the library, as well as two knitting groups and a scrapbooking club. Our Party Bridge group meets every Thursday afternoon. The library is a constant resource for those wanting to learn about new businesses, new opportunities and new developments in our world!
So, when one day I retire, I hope to still be here…at least some days…at the library. Learning. Meeting. Creating. Enjoying Life….When I grow up….
I wear several different hats at the library. Sometimes, you can find me at the circulation desk. I also work with the teens creating and coordinating teen programming. And, I am always looking for new ways to get our library information out to our patrons. This is our first attempt at blogging and we hope that the community finds these blogs to be helpful!
