While I was at the preview night for the Friends of the Library book sale, I encountered one of the organizers, a retired librarian, standing by the exit with her smart phone. "The reception is better here, so I'm looking up an author for someone" she explained, adding "You never stop being a librarian!"
Too true. I've just spent an hour putting together a rather involved answer to a reference question for a friend.
I was glad to do it. "Can you find out something about....." is a request I cannot ignore.
But now the information desk is closed and I am back to packing for my trip to Saskatoon. I'll get to hang out with my librarian daughter, talk shop, and no lieu time or holidays days were required.
