Where Did the Librarian Go?

"Where Did the Librarian Go?" Mom vs the World / Mom.
America: Mom vs the World blog, October 22nd 2010.

"Librarians were a special breed when I was growing up.  You could walk into any library and ask the librarian and they could and would walk you over to the section you needed and actually stand there and help you look for the particular book you needed.  Librarians were a wealth of information and knowledge.  They didn’t know everything about every book in the library but they knew where the books were.  They didn’t have a computer back then either.  If you happened upon a rare subject that stumped the librarian, they would be at the card catalogue looking it up, not just for you but for themselves so they would know the answer for anyone else who asked."
