Hi-Skinks at the Library
May 23, 2013
One of the best things about working in the Library is the variety of the work, whether it is the information people are seeking or the customers. Each exchange is an opportunity to learn something new and meet the residents in our community. At nine o’clock, when the doors are unlocked, the staff readies themselves for business and to greet our regulars. For this reason, we consider ourselves a destination point within our community. Sometimes, animals consider the Library a place to congregate like the hordes of ants that march into the building on occasion.
Last week, a Page was back in the sorting area when she noticed movement in her peripheral vision. She decided to investigate more, and she discovered a critter in the Library. Luckily, the critter in question was a skink. Even luckier for us, there was a family that was familiar with lizards and LIKED them. With quick thinking and an empty coffee container, the skink was scooped up and taken to a new home. That is just a day at the Library!
