Happy Birthday @ the Library!

One year ago today, I started this blog upon the encouragement of a friend who loves the stories I tell about my experiences while working @ the Library. This blog was initially a way for my friends to keep informed of the zany, and often maddening people and things I deal with on a daily basis at the office. My friend insisted that other people would enjoy these stories as well. I was skeptical. At first, I resisted the idea, then I capitulated and posted my first post at Blogger.

Over the last year, and especially the last two months, this blog has grown tremendously. When I began writing, I never thought that this blog would grow much beyond my small circle friends who just want to remain informed about the goings on @ the Library. Obviously I was mistaken. @ the Library has currently elicited over 63,000 page views, and 109 subscribers… I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of my readers for making the last year so memorable.

Thanks for reading!
