Amos, you wouldn't believe....

The library, any library, is seen as a weak institution run by "old ladies in tennis shoes who go 'shush'". It isn't and never was, but that is the perception based on decades of books and films. Most users are good people, but others forget about library staff are just ordinary people working to serve and educate the public.
