Comparison of previous and current narratives reveals experiences of different generations having the same profession, what helps to understand how the specific features of human personality reveal in a specific time period. The narratives of librarians reveal the importance of the community when accepting a cultural worker to a team and supporting him/her, also the role of a library as a “shelter” for the community groups that are considered outcasts becomes apparent, and the supplementary social roles of a librarian are revealed.KEY WORDS: life narratives, narratives of personal experience, librarians, library.
