Daily, a delightful place to work
Library Technician (Former Employee) – Santa Fe, NM – October 20, 2017
My immediate supervisor and the Director of Southside Library were great women and fabulous to work for. I cannot say the same for the woman who heads the libraries (located in downtown branch) and many others past and present would concur.
On arrival, we would check in books returned to other libraries but belonging in our collection. We also processed holds on items coming from other libraries for patrons to pick up at Southside. We also pulled holds at our library daily for patrons. Each day, we would either have one or two shifts on the circulation desk assisting patrons. Otherwise, donated items would be added to the collection. We worked together as a team; in other words, if one person at circulation desk was 'slammed' with many patrons, it was imperative to go and help. We collected books returned to Southside but belonging to other branches so had to ready them for pick up in morning.
Personalities not easy to work with, laziness, incompetence and getting away with it
