Today was the first day of our new ya librarian. This is her first full time job as a librarian. I showed her around and explained the database, lunch coverage, reference questions from teens who don't really know what the assignment is and online collection development. I skimmed over programming, making flyers, weeding and neighborhood organizations. I didn't get to snow storm closings, holiday schedules or students who want you to do their homework. What can you say about the 1001 judgement calls you make every day? I don't know about her but I'm exhausted.
