Leona, the librarian

I work in a public library and I like to read


and do research. I help people finding books,
magazines, videos, websites and other
information. Another part of my work is to
buy new books, magazines and
movies for the library. I arrange books and other items so that
people can find them.
A librarian also needs computer skills because most libraries
have computers. I often also help people using the computer to
find what they need.
The best part of my job is helping people. There are many kids
who love reading. They sometimes ask me if I could help them
to find an interesting book. But I also spend a lot of time at my
desk or at the computer to enter data of books and people.
Making budgets and keeping records is a part of my job too,
but I dont like it very much.
I work full time, but there are two librarians who
work part time at our library. People can come to
our library from Monday to Friday. Opening hours
are from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm on Monday, Tuesday
and Friday. On Wednesday and Thursday people
can come to us from 10.00 am to 8.00 pm. Some librarians work
weekends or evenings.
My girlfriend Anna is a school librarian. She loves reading to
children and teaching them about books and research. Anna
works when school is open and she is off during school
vacations.
Some librarians work in government, businesses and
other places where people need to find information
quickly.
You usually need a graduate degree in library
science or information science to be a librarian.
