Why we do this.

What is the question?

2010-02-14T14:08:49-08:00

As a Reference librarian, my job is to answer questions. From “where’s the bathroom?” to “Can you tell me if my husband is dead?” to “who exactly IS my husband?” I have been asked them all. But sometimes, just figuring...

Whatever holiday you celebrate in this season of light, I wish you joy, health, love and peace, now and in the new year. Feel good, friends!



Just doing my job, ma'm

2009-12-01T09:55:29-08:00

I was at the desk when a middle-aged woman with a southern accent walked slowly up. “Excuse me. I need to get on a computer, can you help me?” “Sure. Do you have a library card here? That’s what we...



Tell me again

2009-11-23T09:47:53-08:00

Hi, everyone. It’s been almost a year since my last post. Thank you all for your kind emails checking on me, I appreciate that! While unfortunately our patrons continue to be mostly in job search mode, they stay pretty cheerful...



Why we do this

2008-11-29T06:42:41-08:00

I got an email from another librarian of the feel-good tribe, along with permission to link and share. Another example of how the little things we do in the everyday course of things may be huge to someone else. Keep...



Long time, no hear

2008-11-14T12:02:38-08:00

Hi, everyone. Many thanks to those of you who have asked after me. I appreciate being missed. Nothing dire is happening, but there is a lot of chaos both at home and at work. My son will be graduating high...



Among the living?

2008-05-07T07:31:18-07:00

I was startled the other day by a woman approaching the desk. She was a small, roundish woman, not threatening at all, and after a very pleasant greeting, asked, “Can you tell me if my husband is dead?” Oh. “Ah,...



Long lost cousins

2008-02-29T13:52:08-08:00

It’s not a part of the job I enjoy, but often the library is one last place to learn about the latest scam. It’s happened with Ebay, it’s happened with online banks, and now, with email. A very tall, roundish...



Small world

2008-01-31T09:54:18-08:00

I’m sorry for the long silence. I had some minor health issues, Christmas came, I missed my daughter when she went back to school, and life seemed....small. Strange to say, I know, for someone who preaches all the time about...



Fear - the Web divide?

2007-09-26T13:50:20-07:00

Hi, everyone. Now that summer is truly over and I have accomplished my three main goals of getting my daughter graduated and off to college, my son his driver’s permit and the four new cats neutered, I am back to...
