A woman with a very quiet voice called the reference desk. She wanted biographical information on “Rin Tin Tin, that German Shepherd dog,” specifically his birthplace, birth year or date, death year, and place of death. I told her it would take me a little while to find that information and she said oh no, that wouldn’t work because she wasn’t at home. I asked if I could email her the answer but she does not have email. She says she will call back tomorrow morning. Yikes.
A 50-60ish man in shorts, a t-shirt, and black tennis shoes (no visible socks) approaches the desk purposefully.
Man: Are you old enough to work here!?
Me: Just barely.
Him: Well, keep it up!
and from the Children’s Desk (always too much excitement):
A small girl is walking around looking confused.
YS Library assistant: Are you looking for your shoes?
Yesterday I found a biscuit on top of the children’s DVD section.
