24: A Day in a Librarian's Life: This takes place from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm

2:00-2:30 pm

Lunch hour - spend 30 minutes on FB, gathering coins from Yoville.

2:30-2:45 pm

Go to Library cafe

Watch kids with too much energy drive the staff nuts

Order nachos. Actually just tortilla chips and cheese. Also a large Pepsi

Go back to desk

Eat while simultaneously checking FB

Look at desk schedule. WOW! Didn't realize I only had 2 reference desk hours today. That is a miracle. 3-4 is the norm for me.

Also learn that I am LIC from 4:30 to 7. LIC stands for Librarian in Charge. Someone my level or above has to be in charge when the administrators go home. Basically, I assist the guards with sticky situations not involving physical action, respond in a positive manner when someone asks to speak to the person in charge in-person or via phone. No biggie.

2:45 pm - 2:59 pm

Wander over to talk to a fellow member of a team

Discover she's already doing what I thought I had to do. Cool

While I'm there, ask a question about another team we're on

Discover I was supposed to send out an email last week to 2 supervisors about the project

3:00 pm-4:29 pm

Attack report mentioned in previous post

Wonder by my back and shoulders ache

Realize my sinuses hurt, too

Give in and take tylenol sinus

Begin running report mention in previous post again. Realize I was only halfway through. Forgot I had to do Spanish DVDs. This report will take approximately two hours to run when we do it. Oh well, with budget cuts and branches closing, this particular report will become moot anyway.

Realize there was an easier way to run the reports. D'oh!

Realize I need one more column. Fortunately, numbers should be easy to extract
