Tales of a Librarian
Another project I'm just beginning is an art journal of my experiences going back to work (2 evenings a week) after being a stay-at-home-mom for the last 3 years. This is significant in my life not only because I haven't worked in awhile, but this is my first professional librarian position. I finished up my Master's degree in library science a month before having my first child. So this is really a dream come true for me. The actual beginning of my career as a librarian! Something that I thought would be fun to document. This first entry shows two journal pages that I did when I decided I wanted to be a librarian in May of 2001. The second page just cracks me up:) It was in Bitch magazine in an article about how librarians are portrayed in film. I then went on to library school. The bottom says "fast forward 5 years.."
These pages introduce my story. It says, "What began as a daydream, became a tale of unexpected twists." The picture is me standing proud with my suit and red lipstick before my interview. Not quite the sexy librarian in the previous page...but, I got the job!!! This is my story....
