libraires et bibliothècaires

In my dictionary, "un/une libraire" is a bookseller whereas a librarian is "un/une bibliothècaire". But in this exercise it seems the word "libraire" is used for a librarian. Is this the common usage in French and can "libraire" refer equally to one who works in a bookshop as well as one who works in a library?

Bonjour Paul,

Merci de votre contribution !

Bonne journée !
