For a part time job, I work at Argos Books in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is a used book and comic book store. Today I had a customer come up and ask me if we had Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. This is a book we are constantly asked for by young people just discovering literature outside of young adult novels, along with 1984, Animal Farm, A Handmaid’s Tale, Fahrenheit 451, and Slaughterhouse Five. The customer today slaughtered the name Kerouac.

I work in an academic library, and although I have my master’s in information and library science, I am not a librarian. Rather I answer the phone, and if patrons have a harder question that is outside the knowledge of our student workers (which is rare since they know all), I help find the answer.
