Library Day in the Life: wrap up and Floods

Better late than never.  This was an interesting exercise for me, as I hope it was for you. It’s been an eye opening experience as I got a chance to see what my colleagues in this profession are up to (a lot!).  I hope you’ve gotten a new appreciation for libraries, librarians, and all they do. For myself, it gave me a chance to reflect back on what I accomplished in the day – something I don’t often leave time for and something I should perhaps be doing more often. It does seem I’m rather all over the place in my day and while that may be expected during summer, a time full of committee work, projects and First Year Experience things, I don’t think it’s very productive. I think I need to work on scheduling my time better, when I can, in order to help my productivity move along. I know I work well under pressure and this may be hard fought battle, but I’ll keep you posted on how that scheduling goes. My days also show I like to be busy (yes) and I like to have variety (also very true). Trying to balance all of this may be a challenge.

On another note, many will have heard of the flood that hit the Louiseville Free Public Library. The Library Society of the World is trying to raise money to help out the library and you can find out more about it here and on Boing Boing. It’s great to see the library community, and others, coming together to help out!

    Hi Krista,
    Thank you for posting Library Day in Life. It is amasing to see how many people participate in this activity. I enjoyed reading your blog and I am thinking about writing my Library Assistant Day in Life.
