Today was a work day at the library. Very few crazy people came in today, and since the internet was down it was quiet.
We've been having a theft problem. People have been stealing the movie DVDs out of their cases and leaving the empty cases hidden in the book shelves. Creeps. So, now we have to keep the movies behind the counter and make it difficult for the general public to browse the DVD collection. It's a shame that a few (one?) bad apples (I can think of more descriptive words to call them) have made it inconvenient for the rest of the people.
Our volunteers are wonderful. They do all the shelving, and the circulation people who are paid to work there are stuck behind the counters being available to JQP (Jane Q Public). We do have a couple of volunteers who think the circulation folks don't do much. It's true, there are times when we sit and rest for a bit, but on the whole the circ folks work pretty hard from the beginning to the end of the day.
