>The children’s librarians over at PUBYAC are discussing impossible homework assignments–like the kid who came in and needed a biography (it had to be a book) about Dick York, famous Indianan. I sympathize–I’m sure I’ve mentioned here before the hordes of kids who came into my little branch library needing copies of God Is My Co-Pilot. The YAC-kers, per usual, have lots of helpful suggestions, not for Dick York biographies, unfortunately, but how to effectively and tactfully communicate to schools just what kinds of resources are available at the local library–or on the planet.
>Well, what about Dick Sargent, then?
