Who knew working at a library was so strange?
I am sure most of us think working at a library must be very easy. After all, the thing you mostly do is tell everyone to stay quiet but peeping through your thick-rimmed glasses. I know that is just a stereotype but that is the first picture that comes to mind when you think of a librarian.
However, the reality is a lot different than that. They are like any other staff member doing their best to keep libraries open in this day and age of technology where you can get anything you want with a press of a button. We already know that many libraries are closing down because people would rather just stay at home and read a book online but that is a shame.
And you’ll learn why in the wise words of a Twitter user who is seemingly a hard-working librarian.
Wait, really? Some people can’t read a clock?
I assumed everyone knew that.
Or you could just make a list of every book you have read. It’s really not that hard.
Anyone who does that deserves to be respected.
It’s not like the computer is going to eat you.
That is actually very heartbreaking and somewhat sweet.
Why am I not surprised?
Thank you, lovely colleague, for everything you do. xx We might struggle with difficulties that are imposed on us, but, damn, if it isn’t one of the best jobs in the world. -Kari
It may not seem like the most exciting job in the world but many love it.
Sounds like a great time to me…..not for studying though.
And that’s why I am in love with libraries.
Now, I have to check out these authors.
You do your best but sometimes that is not enough.
That sounds really bad.
This is wonderful. How do you measure the footfall? Sensor on the door? I work next to a library – might stroll in and out more often. -Flo
It is clear that you have to be passionate enough to work as a librarian.
Why are they sounding more and more like teachers by the minute?
I honestly don’t even know what to say about the trope.
I have yet to meet such an old lady.
And book readers are always willing to talk about the book they just read.
Sounds like the perfect relationship to me.
That is so sweet.
I actually went through this and it is an amazing adventure.
Librarians are nothing without their daily dose of caffeine.
