Shelf Reading

22 Dec

10ecf51fbf2784bd79aa8eb114cd7c5303b26d55f1b0b0a665f803dc736714efSo this is what I’ve felt like for the past week – we’ve been trying to do some massive shelf reading in our department as the holidays usually show book borrowing down a little and there’s a lot more stuff to make sure has found its rightful home.

We break our shelf reading assignments down by staff member trying to give more to people working full-time and then very little to the teens who shelve books a couple times a week.  I had the great joy of shelf reading our fairy tales and folktales section which is fairly extensive with call numbers that have something like 4-6 numbers after the period, a little bit in picture books, and our Parent/Teacher collection.  It can get intense, but there’s something to be said for a beautiful collection of books in the right place.  I just have a few more hours before I get to head out of here for vacation and a little more shelf reading to go…so I’d better be going!  Have a great holiday week.

    For some ODD reason, doing this and WEEDING are totally stress reducing things for me! I can just curl up in a spot and stare and shift and rediscover old books! 🙂
