I got the packet in the mail tonight, and I’ll scan and post it on Monday with some summary. But, I had to share quickly this particular service story. Its overall awesomeness is unparalleled.
From the Ocean Park Library. Assuming if you work there, you need to know a thing or two about life at the beach:
We recently had a call from a patron who had a limit of razor clams but did not know how to clean them. After talking with her for several minutes, Beth said if she brought in a clam, she would show her how it was done. Beth showed her how to remove the shell and the other technique needed to clean a clam. Our patron left very happy!
Because of course, you go to the library to learn how to clean a razor clam.
I can imagine the tail end of the phone call: “Look, uhmm no. Well, you don’t have that many to work with. Can you just come down here and I can show you?”
