6. My Job

I’m a Librarian, a Youth Services Manager — and I honestly think it’s the best job in the world!  Well, at least for me.

My job is full of meaning, and it’s fun.  What more can you ask for?

I touch lives.  I get to help kids get excited about reading.  I get to tell people about great books.  I get to help parents learn how to build early literacy skills and math skills in their kids.  I get to bring some great programs to our community.  I get to help people learn who *want* to learn.  I even help the homeless and the poor and new immigrants.  And I hear about fantastic books almost as soon as they are published.  And I get to hang out with other people who love books.  And I get to read books to small children.  And even talk about prime factorization now and then.
