The Library

I have a love/hate relationship with libraries. I love what they have to offer, especially nice ones. I have gone out of my way to find the best library in town, even though there is one on my street. I just enjoy new and clean. The girls like the toys, puzzles, computer and other kids. Storytimes are always an adventure. So, I pretty much always look forward to going, but... The employees, oh my. No matter which one you go to, no matter the city, time of day, or weather, they are so often too crabby. They remind me of fabric store workers, always having a bad day. I am not sure why, it is not that they have incredibly stressful jobs. Maybe all that quiteness gets to a person, who knows? I often end up at the library at the end of the day. They close at 5:30. Inevitably, I arrive at 5:10, with the intention of dropping off a few books and picking a few out, very quicly. But, it is lights out at 5:15. Why do they do that, I mean, they close at 5:30!! I asked them why and they said it was to let the patrons know they would be closing soon. As though I couldn't catch on when they have someone posted at the door at 5 as "greeter" reminding all entering patrons that they will be closing PROMPTLY at 5:30. And then there is the ROAMING reminder. She makes sure to personally tell each person they will be closing in 8 minutes. My goodness! I said the other day, "Man, you ladies don't like to stay one minute late, do you?" She said, "Well, we HAVE been here since 8 am." Oh, dear. Overworked women!

Jackie, I can't believe you talk back to the library ladies. They scare me, they always have. You crack me up.

Oh my...hilarious. Angela...I talk back too :) You should hear how nasty my library ladies are. We have like 6 libraries to go to...and the one right by our house is new this year and HUGE. I love it. The kids section is amazing. I can't complain. The biggest annoyance we deal with is the story teller constantly telling the kids in the front to "sit down now...sit down!" and she repeats it over and over. I have noticed that our librarians love to close promptly too. They must teach that at librarian school.
