A couple of weeks ago, David and I called a public library to see if I could volunteer there. There were a few phone calls back and forth, and today I finally started working. I met my boss, Gloria, who's a total sweetheart; we filled out lots of forms; she showed me round the place and my tasks; and I started doing little things here and there.
Tomorrow I'm meeting another volunteer worker who's going to explain what my tasks are in more detail. But, basically, I have to categorize the books people donate to the library and keep the book sale section in order and pretty.
They don't have staff selling the books; they rely on an honorable system, where buyers place the right amount of money in a box. All the books are labeled with a price; and there are magazines and videos, too. Let me tell you something, there were lots of fashion magazines I was tempted to browse, hehe.
I know it's not a real job, but at least I'm doing a little something and in a beautiful place; I love this library and my boss is really nice. I think we can call this a beginning to a more normal life.
