Why I Work in a Library

By B T.

The first time I walked into a library, I never wanted to leave. I was a very introverted little kid. I didn’t like leaving my house, or being around people who weren’t my family – true story: I never went to preschool because I refused to get out of the car.But the first time my mom took me to a library, she had the devil’s own time getting me to leave. All these stories, all this knowledge and all for free and for everyone. There’s no one on the door. No one saying “He can come in, but you can’t”. Libraries, and the resources they provide, are one of the few great levelers we have left.
