Librarian for the Day 2019
In honor of National Library Week, (April 7-13, 2019) we held a contest for kids in town to win a chance to be Librarian for a day! We received SO many great entries we decided to give each kid a shot to see if they have what it takes to be a future librarian. They got to shadow one of our librarians & learn all about shelving, programming & more.Take a look at our aspiring library leaders below!
"I want to check all the books out, and that is why I want to be a Librarian for a day."

"Because I love the library sooo much and it is the best!"
"Since I am now in 6th grade, this is my last chance to take this opportunity. I know how the dewey decimal system works, and how to use the catalog. I've used this library for a very long time and I'm familiar with almost everything. I'm also ok with talking to little children and adults."
"I want to explore the library."
"Because I love books! And I come here almost everyday."
"I want to be a librarian for a day because I love reading books. So I could help or be in charge with them."

"I want to help people (like I already do) and be nicer!
"I want to be librarian for a day because I love reading. I read ebooks, print books, and sometimes audio books. I can read level Z books, and I try to read at least five chapters of any book each day. I always ask anyone I can for book recommendations. I read to my cat, and go to books for comfort. I would love to be a librarian for a day because I love books and the library.
I want to help people find books and organize books. When people come, I will smile because I want to make people feel good!
Because reading is my superpower. I can read 20 pages in about 2-3 minutes. It is hard to try not to, so I just do. My final reason is because I want to be a librarian when I grow up.
I want to be a Librarian for a Day because I love books and if I'm a librarian for a day I'll spend a looooot of time with books.
Because I like books and I like helping people.
Because I want to be like Mrs. Nafz!
