I can’t think of any place I would have rather been this morning than at the school library with my daughter and her classmates.  I had a great time checking out their books for them and visiting with the librarian.  Normally I’m the computer helper and this was the first time I got to visit the library.  The librarian was wonderful and we instantly struck up conversation.  I suspect there is something that bonds us nerdy book types.  That’s fine with me.  I let the teacher know that I had a great time and would be happy to be invited back as Library Helper any time! I don’t know of anyone in my family who ever really volunteered much.  My mom worked hard as a single parent and definitely did not have the time to volunteer for very many things.  I guess you could say that I’m the extreme opposite.  I remember how much I looked up to the room moms when I was in elementary school (I still remember them all) and I knew that’s what I wanted to be...
