The mayor visits a school library and finds it very different from the quiet and peaceful space he is used to. He decides that this is too much noise for a library, and changes everything. He soon learns that the noise he was so uncomfortable with, is what MAKES the library.

I have to say, as someone who worked with administrators who believed the same "quiet/peaceful" philosophy, this was a great book to illustrate how libraries truly are. I would recommend it to read at staff development days, actually. LOL Reminding teachers and administrators that a busy library is a working library. Great job.
