Why to be a Librarian

One of our local school's 8th grade came to the library this morning to do research on careers. While looking up info for a student on becoming a public librarian in our Internet Careers Database (love it btw) I came across this list of "pluses":

  • Constantly learning
  • Access to the latest technology
  • Freedom
  • You're paid to read
  • Bright, attractive places to work
  • Satisfaction of helping people
  • Important public service
Hard to pick which is my fav - probably #4, though they're almost all fantastic LIES! lol. I just have to ask...where do they get their info from?? Don't get me wrong, I love libraries and working in them, but really people? Really?
