Why do you work in the library sector?
I love the customers, they are always warm and welcoming! I also love the library environments, there are some beautiful architectural buildings out there, both new and old, so I enjoying getting out and seeing them. I enjoy seeing how libraries are community hubs inside and how they cater to each of the patron groups they fulfil needs for, everything from Lego clubs, knitting groups, mother and babies sessions, job advice and guidance the list goes on, they really can be a one stop shop for the communities they are based in.
They are one of the institutions that you can be involved with throughout your life, from being a child all the way up to your twilight years.
I enjoy the fact that the technology we install can free up librarians from the repetitive tasks, so they can engage more time with their patrons, but also the fact that the technology adds to the patron experience.
