The Secret Lives of Librarians

Keltie Jones of the Truro Daily News learns that there's more to her town librarians than she realized, and wants to know why they aren't being consulted about the redesign of the library.  "While most of us see librarians sitting and talking to people or moving quietly about the facility, they are, in fact, quite an active group. [...]  Modern librarians understand that the buildings that house libraries need to be open, accessible, modular, and versatile. They are the experts, and they should be engaged in the conversation around choosing the new location for the library."

Well done, Ms. Jones, well done!
