I decided to do my own Day in the Life since Abby (the) Librarian and GreenBeanTeenQueen did theirs. However, I am going to do my most INTERESTING day, which is the third Wednesday of the month. I think this day is the most interesting because it has so much movement. I am out and about the library and the community. It is a busy day, but I love it!
