Miss B had her dream job fall into her lap last week. Our little city library has hired two college students to work this summer. One of them was on vacation, so our friend Lisa, who is also chairwoman of the library board, asked Miss B if she would like to temp there, and possibly pick up more hours later too. Miss B had a wonderful time and by all reports did a good job, too. The only problem I see is that she is so young that some of the noisier, rowdier patrons don't feel she has a right to tell them to be quiet or to kick them out of the library for sheer orneriness, but other than that, it went well. She will probably be able to continue to fill in for the college students here and there throughout the summer and then in the fall when they go back to school she can apply for regular work. Our library is only open from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on weekdays. How perfect is that for a student? She can go there straight from the schoolbus when school is in session.
I'm very happy for her, and thankful that Lisa thought of her. We wouldn't have even thought of having her apply on her own.
