Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Refgrunt, 4/9

Posted on: April 9, 2006

A lot of fun today on the desk — got to work on a cute craft project for the upcoming volunteer thank you party (little hands holding a thank you message), met a new intern and got to chat with her about life on the desk (and came away with some great restaurant recommendations from her), had a couple of good reader’s advisory queries, a long conversation with a fellow Connecticut-transplant, etc. Here are some of the questions/requests from the day (4 hours J, 2 hours A)

Caroline Cooney paperbacks
Earth Day picture books
self-check machine problem
Intuit taxonomy job — where should she look for candidates (I suggested SLA)

Elmo books x2 (and we didn’t have any)
