After three weeks of dry, wicked hot days, Summer came, and it rained and was cool. Strangely I have felt hot all day, as if my body is observing the Season, not the Temperature.

In between shelving and the assorted library tasks I performed in accordance with what I feel is appropriate for my job, I inserted fictional characters into my world. This takes a lot of time, and sometimes it works better than others, but when I look at Charlie Brown standing behind the genre fiction area I am shelving in I just get so… happy. And I feel like my world is a little different.

Here then are a handful of pictures of my work life:


Hobbes of “Calvin and Hobbes” having a read of the draft of one of my blog posts while sitting on the rollers we use for deliveries from other branches.

Mark from “Doonesbury” standing at our service desk, musing on the nature of library work.


Snoopy riding our Check in Machine’s conveyor belt, thinking about, well, I don’t know what he’s thinking about actually. I guess trying to come up with something to write about.


Gerald, of “Gerald and Piggy”, who is usually pretty even tempered, getting cross in the Non Fiction section. Probably a shelving error.





Charlie Brown walking by at the end of the genre section, in the strong bit of sun between the storms:




Gerald and Piggie sitting on the floor in a Mystery Fiction aisle. I needed to shelve there, but didn’t want to disturb them, so I just edited pictures on my phone for awhile instead.
