I have decided to repost some of my old blog posts from the distant past when I was working as a School Librarian. Kids do the funniest things and I really enjoyed working in a school. Posts may be edited from the original blog. So this is part of a series from my old Batty Librarian Blog…
So it’s Monday afternon. we’ve got a new set of children hanging around the desk wanting to chat (it varies on the monitor behind the desk) and I’m helping the new pupil librarian learn how to use the library software for checkins and checkouts. The giggle girls saunter over.
I’m suspicious of these at the best of times but as they took out my classics a few days ago they are in my good books at the moment. The ‘leader’ goes
‘Libwarian, you’re the best librarian in the world.’ That’s not a typo by the way. And my response?
‘What do you want?’ in a world weary tone.
‘No Miss libwarian, we think you are the best libwarian ever. Why do you think we are up to something? That’s what the other librarian said when we said it to her.’
Ahh, well it was nice for a moment there. Apparently they had been following my assistant around the library as she was shelving for the past ten minutes telling her how lovely she was. Still as games go, this is the nicest I’ve seen!
