Mt. Everest and Library Work

A few weeks ago I watched the movie "Everest" . Doing so inspired me to find further background material; I found some articles about former Everest base camp manager Helen Wilton. I enjoyed reading her comment about applying for a position at a much different setting:

"On her return to New Zealand after the 1996 tragedy, Wilton took a job with Christchurch City Libraries.

"They told me at the beginning that the library was actually quite a stressful job," she says.

"I smiled in a friendly way and said, 'I don't think so'."
