Whew! It's the end of the week, nearing the end of one of the busiest times for youth services librarians. You are almost there! Hopefully you have had some exciting adventures with kids this summer, and some time to regroup and enjoy the summer on your own, too.
By Friday, maybe you need just a little spark of inspiration to help the fire in your belly. Check out Jason Reynolds' commencement speech at Lesley University. It's only about 10 minutes long, but it is remarkable, and it made me a little weepy (this could be due to sleep deprivation, but I think it was truly moving).
