One cool librarian

The Cincinnati Enquirer has a nice profile of librarian Arnice Smith, children’s librarian at the College Hill branch of the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library.
Forget those stereotypes of stodgy librarians who wag their fingers and say shishhh. Smith doesn’t scold, she shouts encouragement. She doesn’t wag her finger, she shimmies to the beat.

Includes exciting action photo of Arnice playing a cowbell as she leads students in a song at the College Hill public library branch. She says kids “need to be aware and reminded daily that they are valued.”
