9:00 am – 1:00 pm – Teen Weeding
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Today I worked on weeding the teen collection. Shelly had a list for me to pull that met her weeding requirements. So, with a list in hand and a cart, I pull books that have not circulated a lot in the last two years and are older than two years. I pull 150 books in the first hour and go back to the office to stamp them and then wheel them to Loretta in Technical Services to withdraw them and box them up. Once she does that then the Friends group will go through them to pick out ones for the book sale and then sends the rest to Better World to be sold.
I finish another cart with 147 books and stamp them and give them to Loretta. Then, I do some merchandising to finish the last few minutes of my shift. This is the second to last day I am at WCPL and it is sad to know I will not be doing this much longer. I have really enjoyed my time here.
