I just became a Goodreads librarian

I was just approved as a Goodreads Librarian. There are around 70k Goodreads Librarian out of 55 million Goodreads members as of February 2017. Goodreads Librarian is not someone hired by Goodreads but is just a volunteer that can help them edit book details error and miscellaneous cataloging. There are some power to Goodreads Librarian, but not much.

Goodreads took a long time to confirm me as a librarian, below is the email from them telling me my librarian status.
