You know what, I’m so happy that I’m gonna pack on some more oo to that woo:
A couple weeks ago I started working as a library page, and I ~love~ it.
A page is someone who does the sorting and shelving of returned books. This job was seriously made for me. I have the kind of brain that gets SO AMPED by sorting things, it’s ridiculous. The process of alphabetizing a cart of books makes me feel both energized and calm at the same time. I don’t know how that’s possible but it’s the combo punch of awesome.
Other things I love about the job:
The most obvious one… I am surrounded by books! Simply being in an environment where these beauteous page-filled wonders are on all sides of me is such a happy feeling.
My coworkers and boss are are all super nice. I’m not surprised. Bookish people tend to be nice people.
I get to help others, which my friendly side appreciates, yet also work independently, which my introverted side appreciates.
When I put returned books back on the shelves, I sometimes discover ones that make me go, “Hmmm, this looks good…” I have a feeling my to-read list is going to get even longer.
Basically, it’s perfect. I was born to work here. 🙂
Tell me, what are your favorite things about libraries?
