As some of you know, I recently got a job at my local library! Well, I started training last week, and let me just say… I LOVE LIBRARY! (Yes, this is a total “Anchorman” reference… but it’s true… I do love library… and Will Ferrell). It’s everything I hoped it would be. I’m working at the circulation desk and get to see so many awesome books and DVDs and things like that, and it’s been SO FREAKIN’ FUN! 😀 I’m training this week too, and Saturday will be my first day as a non-trainee. WooHoo!
My mom and I are such library nerds so I already knew a lot of the little intricacies about the library and how it works and all of that, so I felt right at home immediately. From spending so much time at libraries all of my life, this job feels somewhat like second nature to me. I just get to imitate what I’ve seen the other employees at the library do ever since I was a child. It’s awesome. I still have my other job as a pharmacy techinician at Wegmans, and I love those coworkers SO much, but now I have a new set of coworkers to get to know too, and hopefully become good friends with, just like my awesome Wegmans family. 🙂 Two jobs plus being a full time college student is incredibly tiring and stressful, but it’s worth it because the library is where I belong, and I hope to continue to grow in my knowledge and passion for libraries. In just a couple of years, hopefully I’ll have my MLIS and I’ll BE a librarian. I can’t wait for my future to begin!
So yes, I love library, I love being surrounded by books all day, I love talking to other booklovers and feeling completely in my element. This is my future and I am so content.
What would we do without our libraries? 🙂
