Librarians

Employment for librarians is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. In the next decade, school and community libraries will face escalating materials costs, tighter budgets, and increasing circulation while having to rely more heavily on volunteers, part-time employees, and support staff. In some cases, libraries will hire a technician instead of a more highly paid librarian as a result of budget cuts. Librarians who are willing to relocate to states or districts that are facing fewer budget issues will have better employment opportunities.
