It's that time of year again, and I've begun to accept applications from students who would like to work in the library next year (as an elective class). On the application, my two favorite questions ask the students their reasons for wanting to work in the library and any special skills/talents I should know about. Here are some great responses from today's batch.
When asked to describe the reasons for wanting to work in the library"
"I always wanted a job when I get in my teen years."
"The library is the best place to be because of two reasons: first you can read and reading helps you learn, and second the library is a nice quiet place to get unstressed."
"I want to work in the library because I am tired of doing nothing about books in the wrong place and out of order." HIRED!
When asked to list special skills/talents"
"I have Day ja vu a lot when I sleep. I can do 2 things at the same time." Are these separate or related skills, I wonder?
"I love to dance and I have great skills. I also have a great talent of finding books."
"Excel, in drama, singing, talking, vampires and monsters."
That's all for today. More to come.
