The growth rate of librarian jobs in Minnesota is only 2%, so adds like this will be super rare.

Wage, Advantages, and Disadvantages
A growing concern is the lack of growth in this field; which is only at a whoppingly sad 2% for the next 10 years. That means that there will only be need for a total of around 2,344
librarians in the entire state of Minnesota. That's means there will be less than 70 more librarians and possible positions open by the time I graduate college.
Speaking of college, to qualify as a librarian a person really only needs a Master's degree, and other than library sciences a person can really minor in whatever they want, because there aren't really any prerequisite classes needed to take library science courses. There are also no classes in high school that are necessary in preparation for becoming a librarian, however taking some elective English and maybe a technology class will be helpful in the long run.
