April and I are here daily and we see busy. Today? Not quite sure what it was but we both were commenting that it was an extraordinary day in the library. People were just kind of all over….at one point there were 18 people that I counted, but what was so amazing about it, is that just about everything that could be used, was being used.
Computers were full, the tables had people on laptops and having meetings, negotiating contracts. The plush chairs had people reading the newspapers. Kids were browsing the children’s department. My absolute favorite? This picture….a teen settled in on the floor (barefoot!) and browsing books while listening to her music through headphones.
All the while, April and I are checking out books and faxing, working on orders, covering books. It’s an awesome place to work and apparently “the” happening place.
