On a more mundane note, here's a log for the few hours I worked in the building on Monday.
5:30 AM Ugh...woke up congested and aching, so no early workout. Scrounge for allergy pills and then work on cpd23 (Thing 6) and continue setting up computer after operating system upgrades. (install Evernote)
9:44 AM At school for 44 min. and just now able to sit at the computer. Passing out/initial setup of teacher laptops after upgrade, checking on docking stations. Phone call about an online subscription renewal coming due.
Joy! My clerk showed up (also off contract) to help with equipment!
10:10 Just updated a handful of patrons in our catalog, then reread the instructional email and realized that info would be updated by the district automatically. Glad I reread...saves a ton of time.
10:12 Cataloging at last...thank goodness for being able to import quite a few of the records. Using Follett Destiny for school libraries.
11:15 Quick break to stretch and snack.
11:40-11:50 Helped teacher moving rooms set up computer connection to television using scan converter
Closing Outlook so I can work uninterrupted for the last few minutes.
12:15 Continued with teacher laptop checkouts as they arrive. Trying to finish this last stack of books before heading out for the day.
12:30 Calling it a day. It is summer after all.
Our school PTA (Parent Teacher Association) hosted Beautification Day to spruce up the school grounds. Now, I'm not a yard work kinda girl, but I do love to work with our parent volunteers and this was a great way to get to know many of the new parents that I've only interacted with on our Facebook page. A plus? Great looking school grounds for the start of school....and hopefully a few volunteers to help with library programs too.
In between days at the school, I've done a mish-mash of technology related items from updating the school web page, helping admin our FB group, learning new online tools, and generally tried to juggle both work and a summer vacation. With only 3 days left of break, I'm getting very excited about the start of the school term. It's a sure bet I'm in the right place as long as I get so happy knowing that school is starting and students and patrons will soon meander through my library door. Summer is all about getting ready for a sparkling new school year!
