Advice for the Youngsters from Jaded Veterans

This list of advice from anonymous public library veterans has been making the rounds for the past month. Reading it, you have to wonder why anyone would go into the profession, a public library in particular. The comments I've seen and heard about the list range from "right on" to "what a bunch of jaded poops." It does paint public libraries with a very broad brush, but there's enough familiar in it to have folks I've shared it with say "yep, yep."


And I wonder if I should go to library school or not?

[Aside: I happily vote for any bond issue that'll help a library's funding, but those don't come along too often around here.]
