Taken around the time I started working there

One of these girls might be me, I am not sure!
I was so afraid of Mr. Vickers. To me as a 14 year old he was a crabby man who was always annoyed with me. But he was one of my mother's best friends and I suppose that is why he didn't fire me.
I did end up liking my job and by the time I was 16 Mr. Vickers had put me in charge of the Children's Library on Saturdays. I loved that as I got to play at being an actual Librarian! Eventually when I quit working there, Mr. Vickers actually suggested I think about taking Library Sciences at University and told me I had done a good job all those teenage years. What high praise! I had no idea he was happy with my work and had spent all my time trying to stay out of his watchful eye.
I never did take Library Sciences, my interests lay in attending the College of Art in Toronto. But that never happened either - another story in a future Sharing Memories Journal entry perhaps......
