    very quiety. I know I know, bad library joke. Actually, I don't know the answer. Sorry. Maybe ask your local employment office, your local library, or local college/university for help

    For a librarian job at a medium-sized to large library, you'd most likely need a master's degree in library science. For smaller libraries, that might not be necessary. Depending on where you are, for public libraries you usually need a state certification.

    Public school librarians are generally certified by the state similar to the way teachers are. Librarians in private schools might have different requirements.

    A good way to start, and get an idea what librarians really do, is to volunteer at a library - volunteers are always needed. You'll find there's a lot more to the job than reading books and checking them in and out.

    A knowledge of, and love of, books is highly desirable.

    Library science is taught by colleges. To get started you can apply to work at a library. To advance in the field you need to go to school.

    you have to get a pocket protector and some glasses with tape wrapped around the center piece. After that see if you can find some suspenders and a light green shirt with little flowers on it. and then go fill out an application
