John Farrier's Comments

My first librarian job was at an urban public library a couple blocks from the homeless shelters. I often met colorful people as a result.

“What I heard a lot of was, ‘How do we serve our homeless patrons better?’” said Dowd. “That surprised me. It was not about minimizing the disruptiveness or destructiveness of homeless patrons.

I've got to admit that I'm guilty of this, especially when I've been very busy.

I learned how to drive on an 80s Chevy Caprice station wagon and a 1940 Ford 9N tractor. The latter of those was scary to drive because the center of gravity was so high and there were so many different controls (clutch, choke, throttle, and 2 brakes).
