Already this fall I have been out sick a few days.  I am one of those people that has to be on their death bed to call in, which is ironic because I am the first to send people home who are feeling ill!  My fear of being out of the office is that the work will continue to pile up, but I need to get over that concern because I could be making life miserable for my co-workers.

Fast Company recently posted “6 Ways to Avoid Making Everyone in Your Office Sick.”  It is a great reminder how to make sure you have a healthy library staff.

    Yep! We’ve all seen that co-worker come into the library wheezing and coughing. We’d rather have you stay at home and catch up later!
