Welcome to the Public Library

Where your job title means squat, and your duties involve everything imaginable.
I knew something was up when my supervisor emailed me,before my shift, asking how far Branch X was to me.  It isn't too far so I didn't mind swinging by to pick up this shelf.  Only to walk up to him at the info desk with this dusty piece of shelving and he instantly said, that's not what we need.  So I pretty much transported one library's junk to another, that's some 21st century library efficiency for you.


  1. Could be worse. Our office manager insists on hording shelving as if she is waiting for a shelving Apocalypse wherein the world will lose all places to put things.

    1. Oh man, I'm sure if our branch had the storage space we would have our very own collection of mismatched shelving and damaged book carts. It's that archival-nature in every librarian.
