    I would be interested in being a New librarian – is there an age restriction?
    ‘Cause I’m sorta getting old 😉

    There is no age restriction , but there has to be a rule that you are curious ,hungry for new information, or hungry for old information that you feel helps to feed your soul. Another rule is that you read , even cereal boxes if you’re desperate,and therefore you have a bookmarked favs list on your computer as long as mine.
    You must also love solving mysteries, as in: who the heck is the publisher of this and where the heck can we find out more about it.
    You must also be a bargain hunter and be thrilled when there is a 40% off sale so you save enough for another book.
    Warm up your visa card Shawn, you might be hired!!
