Is this a good career choice for me?

I want to become a librarian. I want to be surrounded by books & I want enough time to work on my writing. I want a stable job so I can also have a family; I really want kids!:) Basically I want a simple life, but before that I want to travel & get all my partying out, perfect for college.
