In 9th grade, I became a librarian at our local Public Library. This was my first real job. I did not aspire to be a librarian, however, it seemed like an interesting opportunity and convenient. I worked part-time during the school year and full-time in the summer. I became a tactical expert at researching articles, recommending material to patrons, identifying trending topics, organizing library sections, and mastering the art of the Dewey decimal system. After four years, I knew the library intimately.
