Washington Post on the "Modern Librarian"

Washington Post "Style" section of June 24th has an article by Monica Hesse entitled: "The Modern Librarian: A Role Worth Checking out." Here's the lead paragraph:

Men in tuxes and women in gowns smartly walk the red carpet at the Washington Convention Center, to the "woo-hoo!" of adoring fans. A cameraman records the procession, photographers angle for close-ups. One carpet-walker, a woman in blue sequins, strikes a come-hither pose, and a security guard taps a female spectator on the shoulder.

"Are they famous?" he asks.

"No," she replies. "They're librarians."
