Odds of Getting In

Librarians are an educated lot. They have college degrees, plus master's degrees. But after the schooling comes the job hunt. After all, you have to find a way to pay off your student loans, right?

Library jobs aren't that plentiful, but if you persist, you'll probably be able to make it in the library world. You might start with a part-time job. Then you pick up another part-time job. One of the jobs might turn into full-time. With the way the library and information is changing, there aren't as many open slots for aspiring librarians, but your kind are far too smart to fail (source).
