The thing I would wish for the most is something that I won't know about until the end of July or later, and that is that no one at either of the libraries I work at loses their job. Since I'm not sure that counts as something I would wish for this month, and I had to chose something else, I would wish to actually see my friends more than once or twice this month.

My job isn't really that exciting. I check the books in and put them away. I'm hoping to move up to a higher position eventually, but there's a hiring freeze right now, due to budget cuts. I mean, I do love my job, and everything. And I like the people I work with. I don't exactly know what my currently wage is, because it's gone up a couple of times since I started, because we used to get annual raises. Those are another thing that the budget cuts are going to affect now, though.

In addition to my official job, I do also help out at teen programs. I help with the set up, and help to chaperone the programs, but I do that as a volunteer after my workshift ends, so it's not really part of my job.

My position is entry level, and I don't think there's any education requirement for it. They may require a high school diploma, but I'm not even sure about that. And that is also something that depends on the particular library system.
As for how book I check in during my shift, I've never counted. I would guess a few hundred, based on the average circulation amounts, but I'm generally too busy to count them.
