I’m a high school librarian. It’s a boarding school, so our collection also serves as a mini public library for everyone who lives on campus. We also have an Archives which is managed by an emeritus faculty member who I advise on protocol.

Thursday: Got to work about 5 minutes late (the baby didn’t want to go to school). Helped a faculty member with the laminating machine. Had a bagel. Checked email and snail mail. Put out new newspapers. Called customer service about the library software acting up. Talked to our IT guy, got it worked out. Answered archives questions. Helped with the xerox machine. Helped a faculty member track down a book. Checked in books. Found “loose” books left out by students. Shelved those books. Ate lunch. Had a tech meeting about the use of iPads in the classrooms. Helped a student with research. Helped a student edit a paper. Picked new carpet for the reading room. Checked the mail. More archives questions. Directed one of the student employees. Cataloged about 30 books.
