It runs in the family

Thursday, January 18th 2007

I started working at the Fairport Public Library when I was 15, shelving books. I eventually worked my way up to a part time clerk during college.

My brother also shelved books there in high school.

My mom is an elementary school librarian.

My dad took a position this winter on the Board of Trustees at FPL.

So now my entire immediate family has worked in a library, and three of us at the same one.

Anyone want to do a study on whether genetics can predispose someone into the field? :)

  1. My brother and I both worked at libraries in college and after, and he also considered going to library school (but eventually chose a different path). My father also went to library school (inspired by my brother and me talking about it) and became a librarian. It’s pretty cool when libraries are a family thing.

  2. Chad!

    I imagine that you saw this link, but since it made me think of you I had to make sure. And I just realized I don’t know how to post this link without making it kinda messy. And this isn’t really a comment on your post. Sorry.
