|I bet you can't read 50 books in a row!|
According to this post on the blog "Innocent Flower", working as a librarian in a prison is not as different as you would think. A prison librarian, Emily, writes about how the library is important to the inmates as a source of information, entertainment, and income (there are several working there). Both this article and Avi Steinberg's Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian are fascinating looks into this interesting librarian career choice.
This is normally the part of the post where I make some joke about the subject at hand, but I honestly think this is a stimulating look at our profession. And I do not want released/escaped prisoners coming after me for "dissing" their favorite librarian. Much love!
