Q & A - The Librarian Way: Library Favorites

Hey Julia, what is your favorite thing about being a librarian?


I love Julia's answer.  Some of my favorite moments over the last six years as a professional librarian are centered on book discussions and debates.  My favorite part about being a librarian (which incidentally is a point of frustration as well) is that every moment is different and almost the complete opposite of what the masses believe a librarian is or should be.  One minute I'm weeding books, the next I'm trying to show a patron how to add pictures onto his Facebook page.  Then I'm playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl followed by a rowdy discussion about dead squirrels and Star Wars.  I get to laugh, learn, play, and create in this job which is just absolutely amazing.

Are you a librarian?  What is your favorite thing about the profession?

Or if you're not a librarian, what do you love most about your favorite librarian? (Okay...that seems a little self-serving, but let's show some library love people!)
