HR needs to rethink her position. Maybe she should be transferred to Reference. Reply Mary Ellen says: December 5, 2016 at 8:11 pm Hey! No way!

Reply Rob says: December 29, 2016 at 5:03 pm The sad thing is too many of these librarians actually exist and work the desk. There are all sorts of reasons that can’t be fired. Fortunately for me, I’m told I am very friendly. I try to counter the UNFRIENDLY curmudgeons.
