Too good to be true?


In my role as the front desk of my library I must employ my deep cultural knowledge, my decades of library experience, and all the tools of my trade to answer the questions that library patrons bring to me.

 For instance, a man just asked me:

"Are the books on the cart that says "free books" free?"

"Yes." I replied.

That may sound pretty simple to a layperson, but it's harder than it looks.

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.
