1 - 3 ; 5 - 6 p.m.

What I'm doing between questions: reading review journals and prepping an order (first two hours); ordering those materials...even though we currently have well over 600 items in the workroom uncataloged and waiting.

1:00 in the children's room
  • Books/videos (i.e. DVDs) with Barney, and the rest of the PBS shows [of course] -- the patron is with her great-grandchild, who calls her "Granny," and has very visible coclear implants...I've never seen them in-person before. VERY cool. The little girl is cute too, her hair in beautifully beaded braids.
  • Bathroom keys for cleaning [1:50]

2:00 in the children's room
  • @ 2:15 the first after-school kid walks in...the first non-staff person to come in here in over 45 minutes!
  • Keys back 
  • When I leave the room, there are officially 7 very quiet people left

5:00 in the children's room
  • "Where do I get what I printed?" [short answer, if you don't have money, you can't print anything... (though I'm nice about it, believe it or not!)]
  • As that question occurred at 5:05, and there was absolutely NOTHING else afterwards, I did get my ordering done. Lots of kids in the room, busily reading, typing and being tutored.

  1. This is why it makes no sense to me that your time is being wasted playing computer-monkey; your time should be spent doing your real work and somebody else should be out there doing this!

    But what do I know.

    600 items behind...ugh.
