Post New Year Weds

What I'm doing between questions: checking shelves for fubar books (mostly things that don't exist, never did, and were badly coded), and going through the cleanup lists as usual.

9:00 in the children's room (covering for a sickie)
  • So far today, what I had planned to do has blown up: sick staff, and our email is down, OCLC hasn't updated death dates for over two weeks
  • [phone] Renew book
  • Dragonology [checked out, but we do have Monsterology on the shelf, which will serve till the dragons return]

  • Paper and pencil
  • Massive pile of requests which we don't own
  • Pay to print
  • Help with iPad downloading, help with Nook (two unrelated patrons)
  • [I call for backup as there are now 4 people waiting]
  • Internet day pass
  • Help with Kindle
  • Pay to print
  • Print off more "How to download with Apple/Kindle/Android" brochures
  • Help with iPhone downloading
  • Print more "How to..." brochures, this time for Nook, etc.

  • Native American rugs, collecting, prices, etc. [nothing in the building, but I find a website with some info]
  • How to wallpaper
  • Media card reader returned
  • Pay to print
  • [phone] Book for a book group
  • "Can I use that computer?" [gang tats a-go-go--yes]
  • I have to go tell a very sweet girl with a lovely voice that we can all hear her singing cuz the study rooms = not soundproof
  • Phone book for [county]; map of [city] [I go ahead and tell him the street he's looking for is one block south...if he follows that toward the outskirts of town, it changes names to the one he's looking for. This city is weird]
  • Classifieds
  • Help with Zoosk (oh dear GOD!)
  • I.D. asks me to look at Director Evaluation questions and see if I can find a way to make nice even (lower) numbers instead of 14 and 6
