Book Review: "I Work at a Public Library" by Gina Sheridan
I love the way this book is organized as well: it uses Dewey of course! For example, chapter 6 is "302.2 Communication, Failures and Disruptions of". A favorite chapter is chapter 8 "598.2 Rare Birds' which is dedicated to stories pertaining to one particular patron - Cuckoo Carol. Because lets face it, every public library has a Cuckoo Carol (though you may use a different nickname).
The short little scenes are written in such a way that anyone can see the humor, though librarians and library workers/volunteers might laugh the loudest. I am so thankful to have received this as a Christmas gift and plan on sharing it with my staff!
