Saturday Librarian

Some months ago, I offered to switch schedules with the other librarian, who has been covering Saturdays for many years now. Recently, she decided to take me up on it, and so as of this week, I'll be working Tuesday through Saturday (with a few exceptions) for the next few months.

I would never have offered this if I wasn't willing to do it, and I can see definite upsides to having Mondays off. And Saturdays are a good time to get projects done. And there are advantages to having one workday per week on which no meetings can be scheduled! But I can already tell that it's going to take awhile before I don't see dragging myself out of bed and to the library on a Saturday morning as an imposition. But who knows; once I get used to it, I may not want to go back! We'll see how it goes.

Fortunately, I am not alone. One of the things you accept when you become a librarian is that you may have undesirable work hours from time to time -- early mornings, late nights, Saturdays and Sundays -- and you can follow our adventures on Twitter at #saturdaylibrarian.

Edited to add the other upshot of this, which is that I am likely to be online and looking for distractions most days. If you're around, come say hello!
