Holiday reading for the staff

Although the library is closed to students the staff have been coming over to collect mountains of summer reading.  The tastes of the staff are very wide ranging, everything from light and fluffy, deep and meaningful, sad and beautiful, something with lots of action, popular science, cookbooks, and quite a few of the English Dept reading new young adult fiction (bless them).  Pictured are Ms Harford and Mr Tagg with the books they have had issued for summer.  These guys are very avid readers!

The doors are closed for stocktake

The yearly book and resource count is on.  All the items on the library catalogue must be scanned and checked.  It's a long and dirty job, but someone has to do it.  It will take at least three days to do all the scanning and chase up all the books that are not found.
If you still have books out boys you need to bring them back, just post them throught the slot outside the doors.  Ms Schaumann will be inside playing music you hate (a deliberate ploy to keep you away!) singing at the top of her voice, which occasionally means she misses a vital beep on the computer - which is a bad thing.  Stay well away, and when she emerges from the dusty grimy shelves with a smile on her face you know that her most traumatic time of the year is done, and you can come back into the library.  Yay!
