Sunday Salon: Saturday Crew Shout-out!

Ah, 6-day work week, you do try to exhaust me so each and every time you come around.  Yet you failed to completely deplete me of my energy this week.  I think it helps when I have an awesome Saturday crew to work with.  These are the ingredients that make working that 6th day worthwhile:

- One awesome paraprofessional ready to assist as the librarian's partner in the library, especially when cleaning computers
- Two patient library assistants that cover the info desks so the librarian and paraprofessional can have a breather, the favor of which is returned for the assistants
- Children's staff that are ready to jump up to answer questions the Adult staff cannot fully answer
- Circulation staff that makes sure books are on the hold shelf where patrons can find them...and even search for books/DVDs/etc when they are misplaced.

For even when you have sudden meeting cancellations, when you have a staff like the one mentioned above, there is no need to be frustrated.  They're the ones that help the day go smoothly so the librarian knows all is well and the patrons are happy.

Thank you to my Saturday crew. :)


  1. So glad you know how much the assistants mean to you! I am a Library Specialist at my job!

  2. Of course! Without Library Assistants, the librarians couldn't do a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff we do. :) And you'll be a librarian some day soon, I just know it!

  3. I agree. How do we work without our wonderful librarian assistants?!

  4. Tnaks DJL! I hope it will be soon but I'm also content with my job and weathering the worst of the public library cuts.

  5. @ Deb: That's why they're so important to us. ^_^

    @ Karen: As long as you're happy, that's what counts. ^_^


Thank you for visiting. :) I do appreciate any and all comments received and try to reply as soon as I can. Happy reading!
