The interview includes eight questions and answers. Here’s the first exchange:
TDC: Why did you decide to become a librarian?
Claire Gianacakos: Well, although very rare in my field, I’ve known I wanted to be a librarian since my sophomore year of high school. I loved the idea of combining books and technology in one occupation, and after volunteering in an elementary school library, I just knew. I’ve always had a passion for literature and technology, but what really made me decide on librarianship was that I would be able to help learners every day. It is one of the most rewarding feelings to thoroughly answer someone’s question or show them the resources that are available.
