Live from the front desk of the library!


It has been a long time since I've done one of these "Live" broadcasts from the service desk. But sometimes a blogger has to work without a net otherwise they might lose their reflexes. So here I am out at the front desk of the library, taking it as it comes, two hours of live reporting from the beating heart of a major near urban library. And let me tell you, I have been working here for decades and I've learned that anything can happen out here. Something wild might happen! Something crazy! Amazing, bizarre spectacles that will astonish, delight, or horrify you may take place tonight, right before your eyes.

But they probably won't.

Nevertheless, you will have a ringside seat to view it all. So grab some popcorn, a box of band-aids, a stiff drink, and a friendly cat, because we are going live from the public library service desk!!!




Oddly busy here. Was not


Expecting this. It's been quiet enough lately that I thought


Actually these would be pretty interesting stories if I could tell you


them instead of living them. I was


on a ladder.


And so, our time is up!



I can see how this might have turned out a little disappointing for you. I think maybe on this blog I give the impression that I am not a terribly hard worker. I am even inclined to give that impression to my co-workers. But I would like to say that this is an unplanned demonstration, sadly lacking in entertainment, that shows that most of the most valuable work we do around here is invisible. At least it is for me.

Can I tell you what I did for two hours? Eh, I can't see it either, but it was mostly good deeds, which I believe are always best when they're hidden.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
