What is the proper way to refer to a female librarian in Welsh? Bonus if you can tell me (an English speaker from the Midwest) how to say it correctly.

I did a little googling and discovered a Welsh-English dictionary
that suggests both llyfrgellydd and llyfrwr as translations of the word librarian. However, this dictionary and another
one both tell me these are masculine nouns.
(I have asked this question of the Ask Cymru
service, but they've not responded to me yet.)
So...do I use one of the above words to refer to myself (a female librarian) or is there a more appropriate term to use?
(In case you're wondering why I'm asking, I plan to use the word as part of my new domain name.)
