So I was looking for some more blogs this morning and came across this one. However it hasn’t been updated since 2010 but the story below touched me so people take a read and remember that we do make a difference from time to time and we do learn something about love from time to time.
Reprise of An Affair to Remember.
Today it’s just a bit slow but my reqular patrons are here. We have a good bit of students in the library right now, and of course I’m asking the kids in the children section to lower their voices while i type this. There is a trend with our members who just walk in the library and start speaking to us without even a simple good morning. Now i remember when I was young my mom would say “manners maketh man”. But apparently this has gone out the window. I think parents need to remember this saying and pass it on to their kids.
NALIS held a health fair for its staff on the 27/03/2012 at the National Library. It offered testing for Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, HIV, Prostate Cancer, Diabetes and many others. It was a great opportunity for staff to get some of their basic test done for “free”. I have to give it to the staff that even though there was limited seating and mass confusion over the running of the fair tehy kept their cool.
Today I learnt that my pressure was high, my cholestrol was high and my sugar was low.. Guess its time to use some of the books in the health section to help me learn how to eat better and get my stress down ( or maybe its time to go on vacation)
My only concern was that it was poorly organized. Hopefully at the next health fair they will be more organized.
All in all it was a great day and I hope to see NALIS doing more stuff like this to motivate staff for health and wellness
