Your Voice - What is the best part about working in a library?

Question: What is the best part about working in a library?

The best part about working in a library is that you are able to over-ride your own late fees.

Just kidding.  (Kind of)

I would have to say that my job is awesome because no two work days are the same.  I do a lot of reference desk work so every day brings new clients, new questions and new challenges.  My role at the library encompasses a variety of responsibilities including reference, research, instruction, community outreach, special projects and supervision just to name a few.  But definitely, the most satisfying part about working in a library is when you have helped someone find exactly what they are trying to find and for about 5 minutes you walk around feeling like a superhero.
