  1. Welcome to the Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge. I dearly love the library and it’s a joy to find others who do too!

  2. Thanks, J. Kaye. I think as a librarian it is a requirement to love the library :)

  3. Melissa, Not so! I've been around enough to know that some hate their job. There are some working there who don't read a lot of books...and I thought that was a requirement.

  4. J. Kaye, I suppose that's true of any job - people will not like it. Too bad librarians are no exception.

  5. Yes, the other profession that comes to mind is teaching. ;)

  6. I think that one is possibly even sadder :(


Love it when you comment!
