A Librarian’s Survival Kit

In the last month or two, I have read several “Survival Kit,” witty lists designed to help dentists, carpenters, and the like make it through their day. Of course, there wasn’t one for librarians, So, here goes! I present to you a list of essential items to help you make it through your day!

A Librarian’s Survival Kit includes:

v A toothpick…to remind you to pick the good qualities in everyone, including yourself.

v A rubber band…to remind you to be flexible (and to package up that ILL).

v An eraser…to remind you that everyone makes mistakes.

v A water bottle…so you are always hydrated and ready to go!

v A glue stick…to remind you to stick with it. You will make a difference!

v A pair of rose-colored glasses…so you always can see the sunny side of the street.

v Your favorite book…to remind your of why your went to library school in the first place and to use as fodder for an impromptu book talk.

v A great picture book and fun activity…to whip out in case of an emergency story time!

v A few dog treats…well, you know what they are for.

v A tea bag … to remind you to take the time to relax and breathe.

v A picture of your sweetie, kids, or dog…to remember why you do what you do.

v Chocolate…to cover all emergencies and stressful situations.
