Dear friend and bibliophile Chris Crotwell sat down with me to chat freely and at any volume we chose about his home away from home, libraries. Chris happens to be a librarian with a Master's of Library Science, so he's not just a card-carrying member. He has a ton of first-hand library experience from the other side of the circ desk, and he is even a part of a new teen program being instated at public libraries all over Chicago. We focus a lot on Chris's belief that library workers must function as helpfully and kindly as possible in the face of frequent lunacy and apathy. We also go off on a long YA novel tangent, but I don't mind in the least. Chris's assertion that if he is kind in the face of aggression, that aggression stops with him is one that I will not soon forget and is incredibly telling about his larger love of people and goodness.
