 Don't knock it until you try it.  Some of my most productive hours are
between 8pm and 2 am.  No kids , no adminstrators and no distractions.
 The only thing I don't like is the lifesize statue of Jesus with the glass
eyes (they have a tendenecy to glow in the dark)  and when the Ghostly
Basketball player starts bouncing his ball down the court to the library
wall and starts back again.

        Will all those School Librarians who only work a 8 hour day
stand up.  Most professions don't understand the amount of non paid
time that school librarians spend on their jobs.  This includes our hoilday
studded school year and our fabulous 3 month vacation.  This guy needs a
reality check
