The end of another school year has arrived, but for me this one is different. I am retiring and will be moving on to new experiences. It has been a great pleasure for me to be the librarian at Mission San Jose for the last 9 years. I will miss sharing with the children funny books, sad books, surprising and inspiring stories. It won't be the same reading them by myself, but I have many endearing memories of working with kids and books. This has been my most favorite job by far and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to do this work.
Thank you to everyone who helped me in so many ways: with bookfair, shelving books, covering books, making bookmarks, writing book reviews and sharing great ideas for books to purchase. I couldn't have done this without all of the help I received from all of you. Keep looking for those great books!
