We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Up the poll

The League of Nations has decided: in answer to the question "In the scheme of things, what is your chief's highest service priority?" the results were:
  1. Keeping staff in their place (45%)
  2. Hobnobbing with The Profession (30%)
  3. The book sale (15%)
  4. The colour of the carpet (10%)
  5. A nice cup of tea (0%)

This is an entirely unscientific sample but the subject of library managers demands a certain lack of intellectual rigour anyway, so we'll accept the results nem. con.

It's really unnerving to find that so many people from round the globe find parallels between Helminthdale and their own working environments. Ah dear... the awfulness of the public library environment when public library managers have their head.

Just so you know, I just linked your blog to my igoogle since I thought I had lost it. I can't get enough of it.

I am beginning to suspect you are someone I work with since having a booksale is always a priority around here.

That narrows it down to about 60% of English public library authorities!
