Genius!

Ok, Library shelving units are not known for being highly active, right?
And if you install a motion sensor for lighting, you tend to want to put it in an area of high activity, yes?
So, what genius put a motion sensor on the lights in the Library area, so if the shelves don’t move for 30 mins, the lights go off? I have to make sure to get up from my desk every 30 mins or less, to make sure they stay on!
Sensor is (hopefully) being moved this week (I actually pointed this out before the move, but I’m just the librarian, what would I know about the activity levels of the library shelving…)

And yes, this means I spent yesterday unpacking and shelving 62 crates worth of library…I have many interestingly coloured bruises (knees and legs I understand, but how did I bruise my hand?!?), an aching back and shoulders…but the result is a lovely new library area! And that’s a mahoosive improvement on the previous library layout!

Today, I’m a happy librarian…who’s considering throwing her bookworm toy at the sensor instead of dragging herself out from behind her desk next time the lights go off…!

One thought on “Genius!”

  1. Jennie how funny, I suppose getting up every 30 minutes will keep you fit though. It reminds me of one of my old jobs where all our books were alarmed and we had gates that could sense when a book hadn’t been deactivated and lock the doors as a result.I used to sit in front of one of these gates and unbeknownst to me under my desk was a switch which turned the gates on and off! The engineers were called out 3 times before we realised what the problem was.
