So I have some ideas about how to make teen services better for the Rochester Public Library branches. I'm not an experienced librarian, but I'm working on growing as best I can. My colleagues comment on my commitment to customer service, my passion and enthusiasm, and my personality. I need more experience, mostly. There's only one way to get that - by getting hired. They seem to like me around here, but budgetary constraints seem to be the biggest barrier to employment. I drafted a plan about what I'd like to do to make things better. It's about five pages long and justifies staff funding for teens and suggests a three fold solution. I haven't done anything with these recorded thoughts other than show them to a few people. I worry if I'm doing the right thing.
Some people say it's a bad idea to create waves as a young inexperienced employee. I do not want to hurt anyone or cause political damage. I'm not in it for power or for selfish reasons. I just want a job where I can work hard to achieve quality results. I'm afraid to turn in my proposal and justification. I just think that if they actually put me in the position where it is my responsibility to fulfill these ideas I might not be able to live up to what I set out to do. I need more experience first. Put me in a library. Introduce me to a community.
