Last week I spoke at the North Carolina Library Association Conference here in my hometown, Hickory, NC. Afterward I had a lovely lunch with Lois, a librarian friend from Charlotte. She told me that her motel arrangements for the convention had been rearranged and she’d been moved to a motel that was located across a dangerous highway.

So after her first day at the convention, she decided to get a cab back to her motel. She went to the information desk to get a number for the cab company.

April Green, a librarian from one of our local branch libraries, was working the booth. Librarians are used to looking things up. So you’d think finding a phone number and sending Lois on her way would be an easy thing to do.

But why look up a taxi when you’re going that way yourself?

April drove Lois to her motel. And not only that, she insisted on picking her up and taking her back to the convention the next morning too!

Gotta luv those librarians!
