Kissing retirement goodbye - many Americans are now choosing to work through their retirement. 

A brand new report says 70 percent of Americans plans to work as long as possible, but not just for the paycheck. 

Of those surveyed, about 38 percent of people say they just like to work, like Joseph Parnell. 

Parnell has worked in Cleveland's public library for more than 40 years.

"I have no reason to leave," Parnell said. 

He could have retired more than 10 years ago. 

"They told me I could retire after 30 years. I knew that...I know it's gonna come. But right now, doesn't feel like it," he said.
