I Want to be a librarianI Want To Be A Librarian

2003

Waaaay back in the early days of Awful Library Books we shared some wonderful examples of old timey librarian career books.  Back in 1960, this version of I Want To Be A Librarian! was published.  Thankfully, we have this newer edition!  I love this book for the simple text and pictures.  I do think that maybe 2003 will be too old for a picture book very soon.  As the technology changes, I want to see that reflected in the books.  Although I would love our librarian cover girl to rock a more modern hair cut, I am at least thrilled it is not a bun and she isn’t wearing glasses!

Going over our old librarian themed posts made me chuckle.

  1. The last pic, “If they don’t know…”, wouldn’t a shelf of reference works or something be more appropriate than a globe?

    Having said that, it is good to see that some of these books get updated!

  2. Actually, it looks like the answer is somewhere a bit south of Ottawa–if you look very closely at the globe, it’s possible to spot a blurry blue blob that’s probably the Lake Superior-Michigan-Huron complex west and slightly north of that pointing finger.
