Being a Librarian is like…

not a box of chocolates. It is, according to Meredith Farkas at IL this year, like being an alcoholic. Even if you change jobs and your title no longer has “librarian” contained in it, you are still a librarian. It never goes away.

I am answering some questions for an interview and one of my answers reminded me of Meredith’s words to Dave Free.

You never stop being a librarian once you are one.

Maybe we need a recovery group or something?
