The extra services I provide
This is how I do my job. I am upstairs in the non fiction section, shelving through the travel section. I am at Canada. A patron approaches me. "Are you shelving?" She asks.
"Yes." I reply.
"Where is Hawaii?" She inquires.
Using elaborate demonstrative hand gestures I say "Hawaii is a group of islands located in the Pacific Ocean."
I know, but don't worry. I showed her where all our many Hawaii travel guidebooks were grouped together. Plus she can now skip the little geographic part at the start of those books.
