What were the libraries at your elementary and high school like?
I don’t have any recollection of the library in my first grade school, but in my secnd one, it was first in the basement, in a long room off of a main hallway, and then they moved it to the renovated rectory when they annexed it to the school. I remember spending a lot of time in that library. I have absolutely no recollection of the library of my first high school. But the library of my second high school was a large, amply-windowed room off of the main atrium of the main building. The advent of the Internet was upon us then, so I remember spending way more time in the computer lab than the library. Through both grade and high school, I was a lover of the library, and spent a lot more time in the public library than the school library.
What’s interesting about your nearest community library?
It’s large and spacious, and has hex signs in it as an homage to the Amish community.
What is the longest you’ve had an overdue library book?
I’ve been sent to collections for an overdue book. It was a dark time.
Among people you know who aren’t already librarians, who would make a good librarian?
Definitely the two women I know who have degrees in library studies.
Who is your favorite librarian?
Hmmm, I didn’t know people had favoritelibrarians. I do not have one, I must admit.
