Although I have a world of managerial experience through my student internship, it doesn’t really help me much when I go into an interview room and am posed with the questions “so what experience do you have with leading story time?”
So, I am making this summer a “say yes to anything library-related” summer. So far, I have a few fun projects that will keep me busy. I am doing an all day archiving session up in Oakland and I will be doing volunteer story-time for my local library group. I was even accepted as a voluntary Goodreads Librarian, which gives me the power to monitor all the material in the database, and make changes as necessary, to make sure titles/authors/etc. are accurate. I figure any experience is good experience.
Plus, it is a fun scavenger hunt trying to find a missing author, or publishing group.
