What I did today

  • Today I had a Toddler Storytime, followed by a Baby Storytime.  I had many puppets to "help" me and sang "I'm a Little Teapot" at least 4 times.
  • I cleared 3 carts worth of donated books.  (Mostly travel books from the late eighties, early nineties.)
  • Then, I had a brief meeting with my boss about how we’ll be rearranging the schedule when we’ll be short-staffed in the upcoming few weeks.  Storytime might get cancelled.
  • I drank 3 cups of coffee and ate two donuts to revive myself for the afternoon.
  • Then, I researched online which Spanish children's fiction to purchase. (I don't speak Spanish.)
  • I pulled about 60 picture books for a teacher doing a unit on “Cowboys”
  • Oh, I also taught senior citizens how to CUT and PASTE today on this fabulous thing called, "The Internets" (funniest question ever: "Can you just print out everything that's on the internet for me, so I can review it myself at home, before we get started on the real computer?")
  • I settled a disagreement between a disgruntled patron and a clerk.
  • I fumbled with creating some sample crafts for our "Spring Party" at the library tomorrow.
  • I helped someone request an extramural library loan of a rare book located in Colorado.
  • I drove home and admired the sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
