Careers in a Library
Rebecca Anders
1978

Don’t you want to become a Librarian after seeing this book? Young minds are SURE to want a piece of the library action!  ALA has spent too much time and money trying to advocate for librarians and libraries for one public library to ruin the profession with this book.  Seriously – this is so far from what a career in a library is really about that they’re actually damaging the profession by having this book on the shelves.

I did enjoy the fashion flash-back, though.

  • hey, mpls librarian, thanks for the update! i was checking the comments, ’cause i was gonna guess that the cover guy had *quit* by now. glad he didn’t!

  • This is part of a series – I actually BOUGHT Careers in a Bank at a “get-rid-of-our-old-books” sale at a Chicago Public Library. It was old school and a hoot! Minneapolis Librarian – you’d be interested to know that “Careers in a Bank” photos were taken at the old Northwestern National Bank in Minneapolis before it burned in the early ’80s. (I’m a transplanted Minneapolitan)
