Teen Loves Being a Library Geek

Sometimes there is a rare jewel among all the listserv posts: this one came in with the subject heading "Why I work in a library!"

My library has impacted me in an astounding way, and I am so thankful! When I am having a tough time with something, I go to the library to find a good, meaty novel. Reclining in another world for awhile helps to put my own situation in perspective and I am often able to draw from a character's courage, love or wisdom to solve whatever issues I may have. Without the library, an omnipresent force offering its gifts at all times, I don't know what I'd do! Teen Ink Non-fiction: "Library Geek" by Kelly W., Burien, WA
