Books, Books, Books...

The Acquisitions Clerk has been busy ordering and this is a small portion of the books I have had to deal with this week.

I actually enjoy having tons of books piled up on my desk because it gives me the opportunity to hide in the office. Especially if I know that difficult patrons are around. I love letting "Julia" and "Amy" deal with annoying, rude or stupid patrons -- I'm all about the schadenfreude when it comes to them.


  1. Sorry but difficult patrons are part of the life of a public librarian. Some times a big big part.

  2. Oh, I know. I've been working in my public library for the past six years, but I still find the need to bitch when I have an encounter with an asshole.

  3. You sure get them too sigh (spent three years in a public library) now many years in academic.
