Kate Bailey - Mobile Library Assistant, Tiverton Mobile Library
Kate says: Although I am an avid reader, I did not set out to work in a library. My CV includes a variety of jobs including, lecturer in Photography, veterinary nurse, fire-fighter, farm worker, and student nurse, to name but a few. I started with Devon Libraries in 2011 as a relief Mobile Library Assistant, just covering holidays and illness. The job is brilliant; I drive all over beautiful North, Mid and East Devon, in all sorts of weather and meet all sorts of lovely people. It is a real pleasure to be considered part of our customers’ day to day life, discussing books, life and everything in between. The mobile library is such an important and vital part of this huge rural county we live in. I’m glad I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, as I have ended up by happy accident in the best job in the world.
