Your Voice - Why Libraries? - Brian

Each issue of this year’s FLAG we hope to share answers to questions related to library work and life by a variety of information professionals.

Last issue’s question was:
Why did you decide on librarianship or library work as a career?

I became a youth librarian because it gave me an opportunity to take things that I love (comics, dungeons and dragon, German board games...) and share them others. Even when it is things that I don’t love (Shakespeare, baby story time, classical music...) I am learning and becoming a more literate and knowledgeable person every day. Basically, I became a librarian because I like waking up not knowing exactly what I am going to be doing, but that I will be learning... Something.
