BJORN IS BACK (in the library)

I have returned form desert journeys and mountaintop discoveries... with NEW ink to display!

No really, this isn't a picture of me. However, I am serious about being back in public library service. I have accepted the exciting challenge of librarianship at Salinas Public library.

I have many responsibilities, so I'd like to sum them up HERE. This way I can easily check back and remind myself what I need to be doing.

Critical Tasks:

1) Ability to understand and successfully meet the library needs of internal (staff) and external customers (public).

2) Ability to effectively work individually and in teams to achieve organizational goals and objectives.

3) Ability to staff Information Desks (Adult & Children) as assigned.

4) Assist in the development, implementation and coordination of programs and services in areas of responsibility including children, young adult, adult or reference services.

5) Ability to understand customer needs and assist them to access popular and/or recreational reading.

6) Knowledge of library technology and Internet to perform librarian duties.

7) Knowledge of collection development's evaluation, selection, and maintenance.

8) Perform other duties as assigned, including monthly reports.

I know the tasks within these general categories will be keeping me busy over the next few months. I'll be posting periodically about specific jobs I'm working on.

So, stay tuned...
