I worked from 1-9 today. The first hour included some weeding and shelving of new reference materials, checking my email from the last few days and catching up on what I missed over the weekend.
Around 2:30 the Reference Desk started to get very busy and stayed that way for a few hours. There were some interesting reference questions and a lot of patrons coming in with hold requests. The library is located in a town within a major city and we have a lot of city patrons that use the library. They enjoy nearly every service the library offers with few exceptions. One of those exceptions is that city patrons can not place holds themselves, we have to do it. So we process a lot of hold requests.
I came back from lunch to have 3.5 more busy hours at the desk. Not a super exciting day, but it did fly by and I didn’t even get to finish going through my work email.
