When I was here on Wednesday, I noticed that the shelves had become completely cramped, so I shifted stuff around and adjusted our displays a bit to make things more visible and reduce some clutter. It took me about an hour and half’s work of time, which luckily I had since we were dead. I sent out an e-mail to my co-worker explaining what I had done and why, getting a commendation from my boss in the process. I come back after being gone from this location for one day, and everything is back the way it was before I had started, the shelves are cluttered, and everything out of order again. No-one informed me of the changes, no-one said anything to me.

This is what happens when I try. It’s why I so often don’t.

I understand having an American Civil War section in the library; it’s an important part of American history. But why, in Pueblo Bumblefuck Colorado, do we need a large section for it in our non-circulating reference collection with it’s own section lettering and everything? I could understand letting these books circulate (and in some cases they are, since we have circulating copies, too) but there’s not reason to keep them as in-house books other than as a bulletpoint on someone’s resume.

-Created American Civil War collection for Pueblo Library District

Granted, pretty much all decisions over the past year have been made with that same goal in mind, so, hey. Guess I answered my own question.

Everyone’s so happy today. I’m happy that it’s Friday. You’re happy about Guardians of the Galaxy. And Michelangelo here is happy about his new life-sized George Costanza cardboard standee. May all of our days be so merry.

Find the person with the other cup and shoot them or stab a metal bar through their spine. Just do it. Just destroy their spine. Coke commands it.

Chris is a youth services librarian who usually works outside of youth services. His time is split between running a tiny library branch in a YMCA and an increasingly hung-out-to-dry Teen program.

He tends to post all sorts of assorted nerdery here, so be forewarned about that.

If it helps, he usually regrets everything.
