The facts of life

I absolutely appreciate my job, but it does have its concerns just savor anything else does. I worked for years to be able to get my degree to do what I appreciate most–working in libraries. This month I job in the archives space at my local university library. It’s incredibly rewarding as well as enjoyable work, as well as it even pays pretty well. My coworkers are all enjoyable people, as well as we’re consistently ready to help eachother out at a moments notice, whether it’s to shift the periodicals space or just take in a large donation for the collection. The a single tricky part about libraries, recognizably my department in archives, is keeping yourself comfortable while maintaining the best possible preservation methods, however one of the first lines of defense at a library is our heating as well as cooling system. The director consistently insures that air conditioner filters are changed respectfully, ductwork is cleaned, as well as the entire idea is tuned up numerous times a year without fail. This is because the air has to be dry, cool, as well as clean to keep the books in good shape–especially the older volumes in our archival section. But the control unit setting that has best for the books is not consistently best for people; the cool dry air can make your eyup water, skin crack, it can even deliver you a sore throat. I keep eye drops at my desk, however I can’t wear much hand lotion as it could damage the old books I job to preserve. Even with these little hiccups though, I appreciate my job as well as wouldn’t deliver it up for anything.
