Playing With a Full Deck Now

Tonight was a Board meeting and it included our annual employee service recognition. I am truly lucky to have amazing coworkers that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to both the library and to our community every day.

The picture is of a deck of playing cards from the Magic Castle in Los Angeles. I would love to visit one day. When I was working on my MLIS, for one assignment, I interviewed Bill Goodwin, the Magic Castle Librarian. He was very generous with his time and talked to me about his duties and the magic collection that he curates. It was a real fan moment for me. There is a beautiful night shot of the building by photographer Joe Pugliese in this article about the Magic Castle http://www.lamag.com/culturefiles/magic-castle/.

It was also Robbie Burns night and it was nice to end the evening sipping a Benriach that was waiting when I arrived home. I finished the evening with some more magic cataloging. A very nice birthday!
