A Busy Monday Morning

If you've ever been curious about what the reference librarians are staring at on their computer screens, or what they're doing when they're not at their desks, here are some things that I did this morning:

-Helped a patron find ancient customs relating to the fall equinox - which is today.
-Helped a mom find books about sharks and thunder for her little girls.
-Requested 5 copies of The Friday Night Knitting Club through interlibrary loan for a local book group. If you are interested in having us get books for your book group, let us know.
-Ordered more memory for the computers at the circulation desk because we're upgrading to a new version of the circulation system software.
-Handed a patron the Municipal Land Use Procedures Ordinances (which are not online).
-Took a children's computer out of storage and tested the Internet jacks in the newly renovated children's room (they work).
-Directed someone to the Berkeley Heights fall chipping schedule.
-Helped a patron photocopy a newspaper article.
-Logged a guest without a library card onto our Internet computers.
