Today was another full day working at the library's circulation desk.
The hours are 8 to 5. When we arrive at 8, one of the first chores is to check in all the books that have arrived overnight. What do you think happens to books you put in the library deposit box? They land in a heap and this is what the pile looks like in the morning.
While the book drop pile is being disposed of, we turn on the computers, print due date stickers, put out today's newspapers, unlock the doors and prepare to meet the patrons.
Once we are open I stay at the circulation desk... "Check 'em in. Check 'em out."
Thank goodness the day is over and it's a holiday weekend!
