What I'm doing between questions: checking to be sure we have all the Man Booker short-listed titles (and winner), cleaning up the on-order material, and reading reviews.

  • Pay to print
  • Computer shut down [he actually accidentally punched the off button]
  • Refesh time
  • I'm instructed to "stay warm" by one of our regulars [who has sprouted a beard since I last saw him...oddly charming]
  • Help with the scanner...picture coming up too dark [and the Queen of Technology--hah!--fixes it all up]

  • [phone] Three items requested: we have one on the shelf, another is checked out, and the third hasn't been released yet so I do a request for purchase
  • "Catholic" movies [for]
  • Look up card #, and can she ask for extra time if she needs it [blah blah, basically yes, unless...]
  • [phone] Morality and moral controversies [uh, no, probably a college library...]
  • Borrow the USB drive
  • Librarian H warns me that she sent a woman here to use a study room because the quiet area she was in suddenly was invaded by a group of kids working on a project ; she arrives, grumpy as promised

  • [Big City Nearby] magazine from this August [so much easier to get to these now that we've moved them to the reference area]
  • A flock of baby Mormons arrive....
  • [phone] "Amazing Grace" the DVD [is here, and I set it aside for her]
  • the same time "Dead Poet's Society" [our copy has disappeared, so she's out of luck :(]
  • Renew expired nearby-library card...front desk [takes awhile to sort this out due to language issues, but we're good]
  • Pay to print
  • "Do you have any hard candies?" [his throat is dry]
  • Help with photocopying
  • Pay to print
  • VERY complicated question about a college paper on the character traits and ethics of Katniss Everdeen

  • Pay to print
  • Refresh patron time (and calm him down, since the guy next to him--the hard candy dude--is, buddy!...and he does, without me having to say it)
  • Very Loud Woman needs Debbie Newcomb [i.e. Macomber] books
  • Discussion with Children's Librarian post-Día de los Muertos program about cleanup and her after-work activities [mine included shoving food in my piehole and going to sleep]
  • ...and the panic of closing commences
