Perks

A few weeks ago, there was a news item that listed working in a library as one of the most stressful jobs. I’m not sure I agree with that – having worked both in the retail world and as a stockbroker, being a librarian is pretty low-key by comparison. However, there apparently are folks who feel that being a librarian is stressful.

Perhaps libraries should take a page from the business world. (In more ways that one, really, but that’s another post.) From Reuter’s, a story about how businesses are providing massages and yoga breaks for their workers. I could definitely be on-board for that!
