No More Shushing

From the November, 2009 issue
"I want to blow up people's perceptions of libraries."
Chelsea District Library director Bill Harmer--and others like him--are doing just that. At what once were quiet, staid, small-town libraries, a revolution is taking place. It's as if the kids whom librarians used to shush up are the ones in charge now. Bookworms take cover: it can get loud and wild in the stacks.
