Tuesday was much better at work. Like I said yesterday I really do like all the people that work there. They are so nice and friendly and helpful. So I try to help them as much as I can. Even though we all basically do the same job, each library has its own little way of doing things. Sort of like when I was a secretary I could type, I could figure out things, but where one office wanted newer things filed in the front, another office would want the older things in the front. You get the idea.
So I have been spending three hours a day on the front desk. That doesn't change all that much from branch to branch. We all check books in the same way. We all circulate books the same way. You can only give out a library card one way, etc.
I also noticed when I was shelving just how messed up the shelves were. So I asked the head librarian today if she would mind if I straightened the shelves. She was delighted with the idea. No one has enough time to do it. So now if I am looking for something to do, I just go over and start straightening. So much better than trying to look busy or just sitting there.
After work I had to run over to my home branch to fix some things that I had left undone. I got out at five and they were open till eight. While I was there I picked up the next book for the book club Joe is in. He was reading it tonight and is about halfway done already. It must be good.
I have one more picture of the McPherson Square branch to show you today. It is in the children's room. They're theme is a garden. These tables and stools are made out of a tree stump. The wooden flowers you see behind the tables are on the back of a book case.
I think it is so unique and beautiful.
So that is all for today. Since it is after midnight I think I had better go to bed. Goodnight everyone.
