I didn’t realize that as a profession we are more prone to secrets than the rest of the working world. From yesterday’s secret scandal to today’s secret wish. As we read on the inside flap, our smart girl librarian Claire knows all about sex and romance from books. (I totally want to see her pathfinder on this subject!) Again, we have lovely library themed cover art and of course our librarian heroine has a bun in her hair. As a public librarian for lo these many years, I also have secret (and not so secret) wishes:
-That well-meaning people would not say to me “it must be fun to get paid to read all day”
-I also wish that you would see the irony of using the library to help you copy your Tea Party flyers.
-I also wish you wouldn’t ask me which Facebook picture is the right amount of “slutty”.
-I wish librarians were paid millions of dollars.
-I wish I had an unlimited budget.
Never a dull moment in the world of library work….
