Work experience – it’s something that we have all had to do at some point in our lives.
I have always enjoyed visiting the City of Tea Tree Gully Library regularly, as I love reading and enjoy spending time in the peace and tranquility that is the Library. I figured that if I had to do work experience, I might as well complete it somewhere that I would really enjoy and respect the experience and the skills and knowledge that I was receiving.
Learning the skills of the library such as shelving, cataloguing and borrowing are really great skills to have for the future, if I wish to have a career in a library-based role.
I have been a member of the City of Tea Tree Gully Library for five years. It has been a great for me to go behind the scenes and see back-room functions that customers don’t generally see, and I have been amazed. I have now seen the amount of hard work and what the integral roles are in the library. The staff at the City of Tea Tree Gully have welcomed me warmly and have been really friendly since I have arrived for work experience.
Having work experience here is an experience that I will never forget. Thank you for having me!
