Incomparable job perks

The perks of being a library employee are many, and make other aspects of the job (lack of raises based on good performance, low technology budgets, etc.) bearable and actually almost worth it. A short list of those unexpected but delightful perks of my current library job:

Being able to listen to music while doing check-in and distribution (this includes iPods)
Casual dress (jeans, sandals, t-shirts all acceptable)
The buffet table (people bring in treats, we eat them, enough said)
Seeing all the library's collection and having access to it, fine free (hey, there's got to be compensation for being an underfunded system!)
And my personal favorite: awesome coworkers (really, truly friendly, smart people)
