We are into the month of May which signifies summer. One would not think so as I write this on Monday night, with driving wind and rain, but we have had some lovely days last week albeit a bit cold sometimes. We continue to hope for a fairly good summer.

It was good to hear the grandchildren getting excited over the fact that they are back in training for football and rugby again. They missed the fun and interaction with friends. It is a sign that things might be returning to near normal. But we must still be careful and observe the distance and mask and washing of hands rules. Anything would be better than a fourth peak.

The past year in Glin Library has been an eventful one in many ways. COVID 19 showed no mercy and so we’ve had a closed library for most of the year. Now, there is another change looming with my impending retirement. My last day will be May 21st. In the meantime the library will be open to the public – two customers at a time, masks obligatory – on May 11, 14, 18 and 21. I will be taking Annual leave on the other dates and then a new chapter in life awaits. But in the meantime the good news is that Glin Library is open next Tuesday!
