Librarian fights to make sure all kids are represented in books

Kathleen Horning is director of the UW-Madison's Cooperative Children's Book Center, a non-circulating research library devoted solely to books for kids. "She just excels at mentoring young librarians," said Schliesman, who like Horning started as a student staffer. "This is a really important profession that has a huge impact on the lives of children and families in this country. She is looking for people who can carry that idea forward, people that she sees potential in."
