    This book was mildly amusing The point of view was just really white guy, though It makes sense due to Borchert s being a white guy, but still, the overtones of sexism and amaaaaaaazement at other cultures disappointed me Also, I don t think public libraria...

  5. Cheryl Cheryl says:

    Yes, I can relate to the lingo and overall unpredictable atmosphere of the public library that Borchert describes, but just a plain ol memoir without analysis on how to cope with or improve the system is plain ol boring for me I don t want to get hierarchical over job titles but I m miffed that the book is marketed as a mild mannered librarian tell ing all and that s not the case Borchert is not a librarian, has no interest in getting a library degree, and doesn t come off as being partic Yes, I can relate to the lingo and overall unpredictable atmosphere of the public libr...

    Librarians of the world, unite That s what I feel like shouting after reading this enjoyable memoir of a longtime public librarian Don started working at a branch library in California when a friend suggested he apply for a civil service job He s good at dealing with difficult patrons and telling rambunctious kids to knock it off Like most librarians, he s had his share of weird stories the time police arrested two guys who had been dealing drugs ...

    Too much of the chaos Borchert depicted was behavior I too experienced I believe working in a branch city library wouldn t be as appealing as managing a rural small town operation Some of my favorite that s disgusting memories The soft shriek of disgust from my assistant when she opened a returned book containing a used condom When I explained to the patron why she needed to pay replac...

    In my experience, any time you put a bunch of library staff in a room together, no matter what the purpose meeting, holiday party, professional conference, anything eventually the conversation will turn towards weird patron stories This book reads like a compendium of one library worker s entire career s worth of weird patron stories the really hilarious, really unbelievable stuff that gets framed into biting yet quasi treasured anecdotes and then passed around to others to blow off stea In my experience, any time you put a bunch of library staff in a room together, no matter what the purpose meeting, holiday party, professional conference, anything eventually the conversation will turn towards weird patron stories This book reads like a compendium of one library worker s entire career s worth of weird patron stories the really hilarious, really unbelievable stuff that gets framed into biting yet quasi treasured anecdotes and then passed around to others to blow off steam and unite the teller and listeners in a sense of solidarity and purpose The purpose is, of course, to look past the nonsense and continue to serve the public to the best of our ability As an information professional, reading the author s memories gave me an immediate sense of kinship If you re already a part of Libra...
