Job interview prep to lessen anxiety

I have a job interview coming up at the end of this week (yaaay), but I have become filled with anxiety and almost dread about the upcoming interview. I've been avoiding preparing for it, or even thinking about it... how can I best prepare for it?

My interview skills are really rusty. This interview is for a position I previously applied for, interviewed for, and didn't get, which is making me reaaaaallly nervous. It would be such a good opportunity for my career if I got it. I actually have probably spent more time during the past 3 days fantasizing about GETTING the job, than preparing for it.

I feel really dumb because I've *forgotten* some of the questions they asked me the first time around. The interview is for a librarian position and they asked me a set amount of pre-created questions, so I feel kind of dumb for not remembering what they initially asked me. I never expected the position to be re-posted, so I'm kind of surprised that this is happening at all! When I was preparing for the initial interview, so many of the questions I prepared answers for (after looking at AskAManager, etc.) were not at all what they asked!!! I really felt caught off-guard by that, but how could I have known?

Due to that, what should I be doing, or how should I be preparing, to get ready for this interview? Obviously I can't fully predict what they'll ask me, but since I'm being re-interviewed... should I be preparing for this interview differently? If so, what should I be doing? Before my initial interview for this position, I hadn't had a job interview in 4.5 years.
