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":
Access to the latest technology
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?
After 16 years in Idaho, life has taken me to Northern Virginia. I have a passion for library service and a desire to make an impact on peoples lives no matter where I live. I'm a recent MLIS graduate, a Children's Librarian and a social media fan who believes in keeping libraries useful and used one patron, one idea at a time.
