I'm Julia. I'm 22. I have a Classical Cultures Degree, and am working towards a MLIS. I've worked in libraries for about 6 years, and am currently in charge of starting a Young Adult program. You should probably expect a lot of library stuff, with maybe a Classics joke thrown in from time to time. We'll just see where this goes...
The City of Boulder, Colorado is hiring a Principal Librarian. From the job description that sounds like a library director position. Most of the requirements are fairly typical, such as at least 5 years of supervisory experience. But one could be a potential disqualifier. You can’t be like Irma Pince, the librarian at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series:This job has nothing to do with being that severe authority figure wandering the hallways of your elementary school.
Interesting responses on LJ's Facebook page. Is the job description clever or playing into a tired stereotype?
Unfortunate stereotype. There aren’t many like her anymore.
Sounds as if they want a qualified librarian, but with actual people skills (in which Madam Pince was somewhat lacking).
In fairness, Madame Pince’s collection was far more dangerous than just “radical” ideas. They could explode, eat people. Or the spells in them, too advanced for most students, could ‘cause physical harm or death to the caster or others. If students wanted a forbidden spell, they should’ve done like Muggles and used the internet.
