A knowledgeable librarian will be able to recommend authors who are writing in various genres. Part of a librarian’s preparation for the job is to stay informed about authors working in many areas of the literary world and understanding the impact of books on people’s lives. In addition, it’s important for a librarian to be reading the latest novels as well as the classics to become a knowledgeable individual working in this profession.
