So-called re-opening experts are idiots

I have no idea where the last week went. I kept thinking I should post, but then would have no idea what to say that would be even mildly interesting. Because it's the same old, same old, every day, with very little thinky thoughts and variance. Work on galleys and forms. Feed family. Go to the library. Sleep. Not very exciting.

The library did get a re-opening date, though. We will be back open to the public on April 27. I'm not excited about it. We've taken away all the seating, all but one of the public computers (and that has a 15-minute time limit), with 25% capacity who can stay for a maximum of an hour. The specific reasons I'm not thrilled about it are twofold. First, they're removing two more staff computers for being too close to patrons. They have yet to tell us where the replacements will be, but none of us can figure out what other options there are other than their current locations. It means up to two people EVERY SHIFT will not have a computer to do work. Including me on Tuesdays. That's my second reason, along with...what are we supposed to do if we can't get to a computer? I can shelve books, but I can only do that if nobody else is in a row I need to get to, the children's picture book area, or our periodicals/large type section. It's very likely I'll spend more time waiting for an area to clear than actually doing any work, which means everything is going to back up.

All of that could change if they find places for those two computers they want to take away. I guess we'll see. I'm not holding my breath for a miracle.
