They would be screaming at me to sit my fat ass down and get off of them...yesterday some guy called and they do the scanning on old folk..they were supposed to do them at the Senior Center and for some reason they couldn't..and all these people in West had apt's to have them done and could we have it at the meeting room at the library...hmmm...yeah, why the hell not...thinking I could come over..let them in at 9am ..lock them in the meeting area and go back home...and come back at 3pm when the library opens...yeah..nice thought Jackiesue..
I have been here from 9am..it's 6pm...I have an hour to go and my back, feet, and ass hurt...It wouldn't have been so bad, if I just sat at the desk and read a book...(why didn't I think of that earlier????)...but noooooooo, I have to finish up with the redoing of the non-fiction section...I had done the 0's to the 600's...and it took me 3 days...really a mess..today I did all the 600's, and started in on the 700's and it took me 6 hours..that's how screwed up they were...fuckme...and for some reason the books go in a straight line to the end of the 600's and then it jumps to the 800's and the 900's and the 700's are on a different book shelf all together...I'm sure(maybe not) there was a reason..but before I rip them down and replace them..I am going to confer with Nancy...which is Jackiesue for stall until someone else does it..yeah, right...We have some sort of organization called the Builders Club..from 6Th grade to 9Th It think...they come in and 'help'..They think I'm crazy and they do a lot of eye rolling and shoulder shrugging...I asked a kid to help me scotch tape a reading poster up and he said he was allergic to sticky tape ...I asked him what happened if he got it on him..he said it would give him 3rd degree burns...I said..now I know how to get you to work..I'll chase you around the library with a piece of scotch tape..talk about deer caught in the headlights look...It's been a few hours now and he has figured out that I'm just a crazy old lady..but they all really worked hard today..took out a ton of trash, washed all the windows,glass doors,all the light switches, trim around doors, shelved books,etc...oh and the one girl did all the vacuuming until the cord worked loose and gave her heart a little shock..So now I have to go get a new plug and replace it..along with finding a plumber for the women's bathroom,and toilet supplies...
Oh...did I tell you that they hired Nancy the one I wanted to be librarian..With Henrietta's cancer coming back and her being in such bad health, they went ahead and got a new Librarian..a job I didn't want..I think the board and I would have been at each other's throat the first meeting..But they are paying me..yeah..it's $6 an hour...cash..as they know it would affect my rent and I don't want that..not much considering what I have had to do this past 17 days...this place was a mess..Henrietta hasn't done anything in a year at least..books were and still are a mess..So far the fiction section is done, the large print section is done,the paper backs are done, but think they need to be reworked as some shelves are so crammed tight with books you can't even get a book out...Western section is done, the audio section is done, the video section is done,and the BIOS are done..and this place is sparkly clean...My ass is dragging....But my little library is rocking..
Have to go...30 minutes till closing and need to get organized...yeah ..right!
