The shushing librarian

We all know the stereotype of the librarian as middle aged woman with glasses and a bun shushing the noisy users. I am having great fun today watching Les Lloyd, our Associate VP of Information Technology. Les enjoys teasing me about librarian stereotypes as much as anyone. Today his RCC class is building a sculpture in the library foyer illustrating how much paper Rollins uses every week (about eighteen trees if you are counting.)

As you can imagine, this is a noisy business and every so often Les has to quiet things down -- with "amazing shushing action." I love it
