Well, it happened yesterday. And it was great!
Since it was my first program, I was a bit nervous. I mean, I’d helped with lots of programs, and I’d dreamt up a lot of ideas that other people helped execute, but this one was my first time in charge of creating, marketing, and hosting a library event.
I started planning about a month and a half ago. I had just gotten my feet under me at the library, and noticed a lack of adult programming. We were also a library in transition (we hired a new director in October, and lost our interim Children’s Program Coordinator as a result), so it needed to be something relatively easy to do alone. And then I realized – Nanowrimo was a month away.
