Blast from the Past

by Mark Bardsley, MLIS Day

This month's blast comes from the February 1988 issue of "The Sojourner". I withheld the name of this innocent 11 year old who wants to work in a library. I decided to scan it in for all to see because it is humorous and touching at the same time. The title of the column "Potential Librarian Alert" conjures images of frantic officials running around with alarms blaring in the background. My favorite sentence is "I don't want to be paid necessarily but I wouldn't mind." Read the entire column for an "innocence" fix.
