I'm not a library professional. I just play one in real life.

A Feeling of Goodness

Often it is nice to be reminded why we do this thing called library work. Here is one blog that helps us remember that:

Before I moved to my current job, I took a call from an elderly patron asking for the phone number of an aquarium company out of state. A simple question to me, and easily answered. After I had given her the number, she responded ecstatically, thanking me and saying, "That's the first good thing that's happened today!"

That's why I do this job.
