The Start of My Life as a Library Worker
Well tonight I had my first 3-hr shift working in the library as a full-fledged student worker. After about an hour of training, my first task was to "shelf-read". I took a list printed from the catalog, and went to the designated section. My job was to make sure that the call number and barcode on the list matched the numbers on the actual books. I went through about three hundred books, and read more titles than I knew were possible. BUT... I felt very productive for the first time this semester, and I will be getting paid for it. All in all, a very good evening. And, next week is Thanksgiving, so this semester is looking up.
