“Sorry to bother you.”
“Can I ask you a question?”
“Sorry, I know you’re working...”
These are phrases staff at the library hear on a daily basis. I am here to tell you that you are not bothering us. Answering your questions is part of our job, and we enjoy it. As library staff we have been trained to help answer your questions. Some of us even have masters degrees in library science that have helped prepare us to best assist you.
So, if you see us sitting at a computer or in the book stacks, please, please, please ask us questions! Do bother us! Helping you is working, and that’s what we are here for!
