I Don't Just Read All Day

There is nothing more frustrating for a librarian than to have someone tell us what an awesome job we have since we get to read all day. Real librarians are so busy wearing dozens of different hats, reading is often a luxury.

The Librarian #1
"We are not mere cart pushers. This job requires a Masters degree for a reason."

The Librarian #2

"I am an aggregator, a citation machine, a curator, a specialist."
The Cataloger

"Even within the library profession my job is very under-appreciated."

The Librarian #3

"I am not your doormat. Make your own copies."

The Librarian #4

"I am not a babysitter for teachers' planning periods."
