Today was my last day of storytime for the summer. 🙁 We only ran Family Storytimes this summer – for ages 0-5 years. This is a notoriously strange storytime to do since it’s hard to select materials appropriate for that age range and even more difficult to keep all those involved engaged for a full […]

During Library Day in the Life Round … was it 3? I was running around doing Summer Reading Club programs and working at the reference desk like a madwoman. This past Monday, I ran around troubleshooting camp administration, overseeing more super-secret library classification testing, whipping Programming Volunteers into shape and lots of administrative unpleasantries that […]

Today is technically the first day of Library Day in the Life Round 5. But, since I’ve already been at work for two days, I thought I’d fill the Internet in on my “Monday” and “Tuesday.” Also, this provides a good explanation for my unintelligible blogs and tweets towards Thursday and Friday of this week.

Worked on […]

This day was brought to you by the letter <scream>. 9:00 a.m.: Mercifully short atrium meeting followed by the realization that there the only two people scheduled this morning, (as far as info staff goes), are Catherine and myself. 9:30 a.m.: Library opens   x . x <- the emoticon for f#@$ed. 10:06 a.m.: A group […]

9:00 a.m.: Atrium Meeting – Sit around and discuss reference vs. directional questions for Survey Week in August. Have a heated discussion over whether or not to have a room bookings calendar at all access points AND the maintenance closet, or just in one place. In retrospect, I am not sure who won that argument. […]

Today I joined Library Day in the Life – which is sort of a library blog aggregator… with a twist. Basically you add your name to this list of other librarians (word to the wise, right-click and select “add row” rather than putz around for 10 minutes trying to change the table properties like SOME […]
