I've noticed what seems to be a trend among high school librarians, its not true of all of them, but generally they have a tendancy to be massives cocks. i dont really understand what it is that makes them hate life and everyone around them, but day in and day out they harass, threaten, and punish, for absolutly no good reason. now that i have stated my thesis, high school librarians are assholes, ill follow up with some personal stories of many victems, myself included. Currently im a junior in highschool and i have been going to the library for 2 years now. Each day i go into the library, everyday i have the same free periods, i will always have those same free periods, they know my name, but everytime i have to wait in line and show them a schedule that confirms that, yes, i do have this period free, and that, no, not by some crazy chance my schedule now differs from the other 60+ previous times that they have seen it. You might ask, "why is he complaining?", well its not that simple. I often forget or loose my schedule as do most people, and because they are bitches they have refused to let me into the library many times because i do not have the adequate paper work. So, now, altough the librarians and myself both know that i have 2ed period free, i have to go searching around the school for a schedule, and because of the racial tensions, security has been tightened tenfold so i can not go anywhere with out pass. so now because i dont have a pass i have to sit in the hallway alone doing my homework with them coming out every 5-10 minutes to tell me i have to leave. when i reply, "i cant because i dont have pass," they reply, "thats not our problem. To make me even more indignant, right next to where i sign in is a computer. This computer contains only one program, to type in the students name and check their schedule. i have tried to asked them about it, but none of them listen to reason no matter how incorect their argument. They have the easiest jobs in our school, they, shelve book rarely, and "shisshhhhhh" people. They get a pension for telling people to be quiet, so there is no reason why they cant be nicer. When i do get to sign in, i usually sign just my last name, its quicker, and they dont need my first name, but they demanded that i write my first name, and when i questioned why, they threw me out into the hall again. Another HUGE problem is when they decide the library is full. They have a large sign thats says, guess what, "librarys full", but its not the sign itself, obviously, its when they choose to put it out. Im not sure what causes it, but it is deffinantly has nothing to do with the number of students in the library. On many occasions, i have seen groups of 5-6 people leave, as im trying to get in, and they still refuse to let anyone in. Its not as thought they are just targeting me, they do it to everyone. The library has literally become close to a toralitarian government, where they are the dictators and us the helpless students. i dont know from where they get their power, but none of the teachers like them, and they call security if you refuse to leave. they also dont allow ipods or personal music devices, i dont know if that is a common theme for most high school libraries, but its an aweful rule. You arent boardcasting their music, and the only person who hears it is you. Then there is the male librarian, he is one of the worst. He believes that he is a god when it comes to computers, but i often find explaining the simplish shit. He literally gave us a lesson on how to use googles. the point of googles is that children or really stupid adults can use it without question. the idea of library is to premote a working environment, but that cant be achieved if it is almost impossible to even get in. They also make you pay $0.10 a copy, and when i forgot to pay one of them lef the safety of the nest and heckeled and followed my all the way to my next class. they have a sign that says that they will order any magazine, and despite multiple request they will not subscribe to freeskier, but they are willing to subscribe to dog fancy and cat fancy, which we requested as a joke. they have an alarm system in the hall for people trying to steal books, which is actually recidculous, but none-the-less, when the alarm goes off and the hallway has a lot of people they make everyone come back and search their bags. they have a no food policy, which makes sense, but when they catch you with food or they even see food, even it is closed and you are blatantly not eating it, they will take it and throw it out
i literally have know idea what to do with these people, i need the library, because thats where i do my hw so i cant do something too over the top, because they will ban me. my friends an i have been trying to sneak in, we are realy obvious about it, and then we get mostly inside, everyone runs in different directions of the library and hides, that is the only situation where they have to do anything all day. Im going to do something but i dont know what. also im not saying this aplies to all high school librarians, so if your mom is one im not talking about her. But this injustice needs to stop, and does anyone know how to get into the administrative account?
