I am thankful for our Clerks who run our circulation desk. They deal with the rude, the confused, the difficult and the rest of the patrons everyday. They are the public face of our staff and do a terrific job of trying to make people happy, even when they have to say no.
I am thankful for the cleaning crew because cleaning public restrooms is just plain hard.
I am thankful for our building maintenance man who comes to fix stuff when it's broke or calls someone who can.
I am thankful for our shelvers who work the hardest, get the least reward and still take pride in doing their jobs well. The way our library functions and looks is largely due to their efforts.
