I’m Aryssa and I am a public librarian in Washington, D.C. Today, I’m taking you behind the scenes for a day in my life. Every day is different–especially when dealing with the public–but here’s what a typical Wednesday looks like for me!
Morning – Me time
The public libraries here in DC are open until 9pm on weekdays, so my branch splits our shifts. On Mondays and Tuesdays, I work a typical 9AM-5:45PM, but on Wednesdays and Thursdays, I work 12:30-9:15PM. On those later work days, I like to sleep in a bit, eat a big breakfast, and accomplish anything I might need to get done. Sometimes this means doing laundry and cleaning house, sometimes it is running errands, and other times, I can curl up on the couch with a good book before I have to head to work.
