Thought I'd share the following description of librarians from the book, "Who
Put the Rainbow in the Wizard of Oz; Yip Harburg, Lyricist" by Harold
Meyerson and Ernie Harburg.

This book is about Yip Harburg, the lyricist who wrote the words to the
songs in the movie, "Wizard of Oz", as well as other Broadway and Hollywood
musicals.  He is quoted, in reference to his early life, ca 1912, "There was
no place to study at home, a cold-water apartment with no steam heat; the
stove was in the kitchen and it was always cold.  So my study was the
library on Tenth Street, right opposite Tompkins Square Park . . . It was a
fine, warm, clean place, and there were lovely librarians, with blonde hair
and blue eyes and elegant accents.  The attraction was magnetic.  And they
put me on to some great books."

A nice change from what the past and present media usually describes us as.

Happy Holidays.
