I was sixteen when I knew I wanted to work in a library. My parents introduced me to the world of reading and libraries at a young age and I realized at the age of sixteen that I wanted to work at a library. It was not until I as eighteen and out of school did I realize my dream. That was close to twenty-four years ago and I have worked in three different libraries in two states. I worked for about twelve years in Florida and when I married and moved away, I was lucky to be able to work again in a library in PA. I am at my happiest when I am in a library and I consider the library my second home.
