First thing this morning, a man came up to the desk to ask if we had a library cat.
Me: “You mean a cat that lives here? Sadly, no.”
Man: “I just read that Dewey the Library Cat book. I think this library should get a cat!”
Me: “I don’t think it’s in the cards. But that would be neat, huh?”
Man: “Tell you what. I’ll donate a cat. I’m sure there are some free kittens listed on Craigslist.”
Me: “Please don’t do that. We love animals, but we can’t have a library cat.”
Man: “How about a puppy?”
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR LABELS.
It’s not full-time and I don’t get benefits but I really love my second little library job. Right now I finally get to realize one of my silly dreams from library school and help rebuild a neglected circulating music collection!
The assistant director wants to change our CD processing, too, because right now we kinda cover most of front with barcodes and fine warnings and property stickers. WHOOPS.
I have experience from my other job, but I’m curious what folks do with music CDs in other libraries. Anybody out there proud of their processing?
