Librarian

Fame

Fame and librarians. Is that an oxymoron? Or just moronic? Let’s think of famous librarians.

Hmm.

Yes! Benjamin Franklin. Didn't we already mention him? He jump-started the lending library in the colonies, but that doesn't necessarily classify him as a member of the profession.

You may not become famous, but fame isn't everything. You keep telling yourself that.
