Materials Processor and Cataloging AssistantWhy did you choose to work in a library?
Libraries have always been a part of my life. My grandmother was a librarian and always spoke fondly of her work. Before my family relocated to Georgia, I owned and operated a small daycare. I would take the kids to the library several times each week.
After moving to Georgia, I decided to take a different career path. When I saw the part-time job for Materials Processor, I jumped at the chance to work at the library. And 10+ years later, I’m still very happy to be here!Describe your job in five words or less.
