You know you’re a children’s librarian

when it’s quittin’ time
and you’ve got to go
but a child asks for help
and you can’t say no.

I’ll admit my bias right up front.   If I’m off the clock and an adult approaches me for assistance, I have no qualms with directing him to the reference librarian on desk duty. However, since I’m the only children’s librarian in the branch, if a child asks me for help, I’ll stay – especially if it’s a reader’s advisory question – my favorite!

    There is so much joy and appreciation on their faces when you find what they’re looking for.

  2. Even though I no longer work in a library, I can’t stop my inner children’s librarian from coming out. If I’m in a library or bookstore and a kid needs help, I am usually piping up to help.
