You're kidding, right? Both uses of avocation in your example show it to be something other than regular work, or vocation. Tut-tut!

This quote is talking about Ms. Sullivan's main job not her hobby. You could switch to the word vocation without changing the meaning.Quote:"For librarian Maureen Sullivan, the world of libraries is much more than an avocation."
