Amid cuts, custodial jobs go unfilled in libraries

Among many of the unpleasant surprises awaiting the newbie public librarian is the realization that you will be expected and/or forced to clean up dirty bathrooms, etc., when there is no janitor.

This is in addition to your regualar duties as librarian/security guard.
