I really love libraries and Librarians too and I was wondering what do I need to do, besides talk to my librarian, to become one? I am going to be his aide this year but I don’t think that’s enough. Any advice or ideas?
Now I know at least a few librarians read this blog. Can you give Hillary! some guidance? I’m pretty sure she’s from the US of A. You have to get a degree in library studies, right? I know that’s what you need in Australia.
From my casual observation there seems to have been a big growth in the number of specialist teen librarians. Is that right? On the other hand, I keep reading about libraries closing from lack of funding. Are there plenty of jobs out there? What are librarians paid? Is it as low as it is for editors1?
- Just remember no matter how low the salaries of editors and librarians, they’re both earning more than the average published writer. [↩]
