One of the libraries that I manage is having a much-delayed refit and redecoration this month. As a result my working days have been a little more varied this month.
If I haven’t been scurrying from place to place sorting out appraisals or getting a headstart on next month’s timetables, then I’ve been walking on rooftops inspecting drainage channels, watching workmen dodge flying books, and debating exactly when to tell someone his shelves aren’t straight.
It’s been that kind of month. On the plus side, the library has a new paint scheme and carpets, and a whole new layout that I think is going to draw people in.
We’re planning STEM events for the reopening, along with the more traditional Rhymetime and Story Time, and several staff have been pressed into service to wear an incredible penguin costume while leafletting.
Roll on this coming Saturday
