Reisverslag First day of working

First day of working
Kenton Library, its personal and their guests are as multicultural as Harrow itself. Need prove? It has a special bilingual children section and Indian adult books sections. This multicultural environment pusses your English comprehension to its boundaries, because every single person pronounces one word completely different than the other and then you’re the one who needs to understand every single one of them. You basically can’t adept to all of their styles, but need to.
The truly worst nightmare of an OCD patient: My first day working in the library
All books and other items have their own place, in between others, and close to none are standing there or ever will.
Today I could sleep a lot longer than yesterday, because Kenton Library will only will be open from 9.30 (until 17.30) and it only takes around 10 minutes to walk there. The manager first showed me around the whole library and explained the basics of their sorting system.
Alphabetical, strict alphabetical, numerical and for most of the children’s section with dot and stars.
My first task: spread out the books to make sure that every shelf isn’t half empty nor so tight you can’t get a single book out. The rest of the day I joined in with the rest of the staff sorting out books and putting them back where they belong (for the time being), having teatime (not just BREAK) and doing some more sorting.
After work I walked home, took the wrong turn, but found my way. When I had enjoyed my dinner, sausage and baked potato with vegetables, I finished this diary entry.
