After working as a paraprofessional in libraries from 1972-1979, I received my MLS from Rutgers 1n 1980.

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?
Yes, I warmed the petals. I'm also "in charge" of capturing any insects found in the library and setting them free.
