Who’s the librarian?


A librarian is more than a teacher, a parent, a lawyer and beyond an ordinary man’s imagination. The librarian gives more assistance to the reader as well as trying to teach them to rely upon themselves and become independent. The librarian’s mission is to further the education of the masses, from the individual’s school years and going beyond university to recreational.

The librarian is an educator who “creates and stimulates a desire for knowledge and who directs its use” (Green: 1876, p.80). In addition, the librarian stimulates public thought, moulds public opinion, and educating to all of the higher possibilities of human thought and action. He or she is on the mind of every citizen who needs to find an answer.
