Hail, Saint Jerome!

Since no one else is going to say it:

Today is the feast-day of Saint Jerome, patron saint of librarians.

Here’s to those brave souls who deal with people who don’t know their alphabets or can’t read signs that plainly indicate that books are not to be reshelved, and who are the keepers of worlds of wonder.

Here’s to those men and women who seek to add to their collections in order to offer the greatest range of knowledge to seekers.

And here’s to those moms and dads who read to their kids, encouraging a life-long love for literature and a thirst for story.

Hip hip hurrah!
