I Work at a Public Library but...

Currently, I’m a public assistant at my public library. Basically, this means that I assist with morning delivery (checking in returned items from other locations, fulfilling holds, and emptying the bookdrops), answering basic reference questions, helping with patrons with the computers (printing, resumes, etc.), checking items out to people, and doing collection maintenance (a fun way of saying I check to see if books need to be discarded because they are outdated or in poor condition). 1,473 more words
