SRCSA: Cataloging textbooks

Laptop computer open to library-catalog listing of individual items associated with a title. Piles of barcoded textbooks are next to the laptop.

This librarian is mobile! At Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts this week, I began cataloging textbooks in our resource-management system. Portable set-up lets me bring my work after-school into classrooms, where I can create item records and then check items out to educators.

JOANN’s ‘Cut Above’ customer-service award

Silver scissors pin against dark green fabric

Recently earned “A Cut Above” award working as a Team Member at JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores. This silver scissors-pin is awarded for providing good customer service — and as this is something I strive to do in all of my professional relationships, it really means a lot to me, to have earned this recognition.

Back-to-school prep in SRCSA library

Finished out a busy week preparing for the new school year at Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts. By the end of my shift on Friday in SRCSA Library, I’d successfully located boxes of curriculum from a large go-through pile. I compared these resources against a check-list of items that had been requested by teachers. Then I loaded items onto a book-cart, and delivered them to classrooms. The “other side of the coin,” of course, is clearing away out-of-date items. With a book-truck and cart, I removed items from a classroom in preparation to send them back-to-district.

Bicycle in SRCSA library

My blue Specialized Sirrus Sport bicycle with yellow and multi-striped bicycle helmet clipped to the trunkbag, parked in front of cupboards and counter-tops in an office-type setting

Brought my bicycle to work with me on Wednesday in the library at Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts. Once we’ve fully effected our move, this workplace scene will be a daily reality. I’ll be able to commute every day on foot, via public transportation, or on bicycle.
