The Mischief Managed is already out of stock. I own the banned book one and it is awesome.

Libraries are interacting with patrons in digital spaces. Virtually all libraries have a Facebook page, and over half are on Twitter, but as the social media landscape continues to evolve, so must libraries’ digital presence. This doesn’t mean abandoning existing social media channels; it means using each platform as effectively as possible without overextending already overworked librarians. Tumblr can augment your library’s existing social media presence rather than replacing your current efforts.
I wrote an article using Tumblr to offer RA services in libraries for novelistra.
We have database training tomorrow and I told my boss I would be there and now I’m wondering what in the hell possessed me to say I’d be there first thing in the morning on my day off.
But, at the same time, the rep is bringing us breakfast…

So one of my “stalkers” from my old job
Has found me at my new job
And I can’t hide like I could at my old job so I just have to deal with the physical illness of that person talking to me and seeking me out.
You should definitely tell someone you work with just so they can keep an eye out and step in if it goes too far or takes up too much of your time. It may not be serious enough to outright refuse to help that patron, but if you’re uncomfortable, you should at least have someone be aware of the situation.
(I definitely have someone that my coworkers watch out for when I’m around.)
Not pictured: BOXES
I have my books sorted by Library of Congress catalog number
don’t fucking judge me
Why would I judge? Mine are by subject area, then alphabetical (series are chronological)
until the ADHD wins out, then it’s haphazard and then I make a BOOK FORT
We do a mixture of all of these, I think, except for Stacked. Basically:
We have four bookshelves, with each bookshelf having a different sort of books. One is dedicated to art, music, and RPG books. Another to novels, and another to manga. The fourth is sort of spillover of novels with books on writing at the top.
Hardcovers are separate from paperbacks. Hardcovers tend to be larger and taller, so they’re up towards the top of the bookshelf.
Authors are grouped together, with their books going in alphabetical order UNLESS there’s a series (in which case the series goes in chronological order).
Fiction first, by author (alphabetical) and title (also alphabetical, but series name > individual titles). Then it’s non-fiction by Dewey. And currently all of my long series and boxed sets are in a separate, smaller bookcase with doors on it.
