Being a public librarian can be a thankless job, especially if your library happens to be located next to a major public school. Not that the kids from the nearby Kealing Junior High are a headache, mind you, but often the foot traffic of little feet at this particular Austin branch can get a little busy -- and noisy. Here's to the staff of Carver Library. They are angels. Mind you, they are also firm disciplinarians (when you go in there to read, you'd hardly even suspect you were sharing space with so many seventh-graders,) but their love and care for their "kids" is apparent. And parents, especially, though we don't show it nearly enough, do indeed appreciate it. Special shout-outs to Claudia, Herbie, and Wired for Youth's Michele!
