Secret Library Stuff

Want to know what happens behind the scenes? 
Here is a review from a recent work experience student.

This last school holidays, I did work experience at Ashburton Library.

I learned about (and participated in) shelving, perfect ordering (making sure books can be found), children's activities (storytimes and holiday programs), home library (making sure those who can't get to the library can still access books) and processing (preparing books to be borrowed).

It was great fun and I really enjoyed helping out with the holiday program for kids.

I love the fact that the working environment at the library is comfortable and friendly. It surprised me that the library is more than 'just put the books back in order'.

I would definitely recommend this career to book enthusiasts like myself.

If you're enthusiastic about reading in all its forms, helping the community and community events; check out your local library!
