Main Frame

Today we packed up boxes to send back. We had received a box of books from a publisher and Mrs. H decided not to even look at them and send them back, with books to return to other schools we sent back 9 boxes. We also packed up some Accounting workbooks to send back since they weren't the right set, along with some other accounting workbooks as well. That department is going to do all their workbooks online now and save the paper. Processed ten new issues of magazines and got them out on the display rack. I sent an email to North HS about a Teacher's Edition of Developing Child. I apologized and blamed getting asked if I'd like a senior discount last weekend, but I couldn't remember why we were getting it and she called to ask me to send it back! We weren't supposed to get it! We are running out of Spanish workbooks and Mrs. H, the head of the international languages department and I talked about what was going on with those. I took my list of students to bill from damaged textbooks and discussed with our bookkeeper how to do this. She asked if we could just take care of these and log them into the Main Frame. She just didn't have time. So I spent the rest of the afternoon on the Main Frame billing the students $5 each for time and materials to work on them. Mrs. H put my blog and hers on the library web page (yeah!), and of course, checked in and out books individually throughout the day and handed out workbooks that students had purchased.

A librarian's work is never done...I love how you are so to the point, while I just ramble. Between the two of us and our blogs, we just about cover everything! We just might conquer the world next! :)
