I'm the last one here.

Not really. I'm just the last staff person here at the law library. I'm alone in these back offices. Students study in the reading room, and a student mans the circulation desk, but I am the last "adult" here. My boss has left early today, taking the whole of next week off. My usual schedule is 9 - 6, rather than everyone else's 8 - 5. The only other person with my schedule is out today.

And it's Friday before the break. The week of Thanksgiving is a break here. No classes next week.

I'm loving the quiet of this moment, the clattering of the keys under my fingers the only real noise.

Yesterday we had a power outage and I relished the quiet then, too. My librarian heart was happy to come in and find people gathered near the windows, reading by sunlight. A few holdouts relied on the batteries in their laptops, but it was a lopsided and very quiet reading room yesterday morning.

I just wanted to share, but now I'm off to get some reading done.

Have a wonderful weekend.
