CSN has several librarians who work at our reference desks part-time and also answer questions on our Library website through chat. You might have met them in the evening or on the weekends. Some of our part-time (adjunct) librarians also work at the public libraries, so you might recognize them from those libraries too. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be highlighting some of our part-time librarians so you can get to know them better.

What is the most interesting request that you have gotten as a librarian? Not interesting, but strange. A patron wanted us to do her online shopping for her. She wanted us to search for the items and then she would give us her credit card info over the phone. I thought it was cute and that she was very trusting to want to give her credit card to a complete stranger over the phone.
