Mason’s Musings November 17th, 2023
I have some very exciting yet saddening news for you all. I have been given a job offer from another library and will be leaving the Krum Public Library. No, this isn’t an early April Fool’s day prank like I pulled last time. Excited as I may be it will certainly be bittersweet to leave all of you, our dedicated patrons that I’ve grown to know this past year. My last day with the Krum Public Library will be November 22nd. I hope to get to say good bye to as many of you as possible. Our patrons truly make the overall environment here at Krum Public Library such an enjoyable space to be in. I’m so honored to have been a part of that experience.
With that big news out of the way let’s get into something a little more lighthearted. First of all, a big thanks to everyone who showed up to last week’s Holiday Photo Shoot. All proceeds go directly to the Friends of the Library to help fund new and exciting things here at the library. This week, however, lets talk about something old, older than the establishment of our United States. November is Native American Heritage month and it’s so important that we acknowledge and respect the people who cultivated and worked together with our land. We have a wonderful selection of Native American stories, poems, history, and testimonials on display near the front desk, all available to check out. Make sure to give thanks to the people that cultivated this beautiful land long before us.
This Thanksgiving I am definitely giving thanks to all of the amazing people I’ve had the chance to meet and interact with while working here at the library. Both patrons and co-workers have made the experience of working here so very magical and important to me. I wish you all an amazing Thanksgiving weekend (try not to get trampled during Black Friday). Have a great rest of your week, and who knows maybe I’ll see you around, as a patron!
