What Librarian's do...

As many of you know I have a long list of things that I do at the library and in the last week I was coerced in to putting together coffee and muffins for a meeting I was hosting.

And yesterday, would you believe, a Bouncer? Who knew the library needed a bouncer, ok, it was a bit more a combination of bouncer and traffic cop.

We had a very successful author visit with book buying and signing. I'd gone to see the program, but when it was over chaos began and no one was herding the people to the correct lines. So, I moved chairs, herded people and kept lines in something that may have resembled order. Not to mention keeping people not in the lines away from the author.

Traffic cop is apparently a better job for me than selling the books, 'cause the last time I was selling books, I was doing it fast and furious and I managed to sell the authors personal copy that he had brought with him. oops.
