"Ten minutes after the library closed one
night, a breathless young man showed up
saying that he had to find out what tadpoles
eat. It seems that his children had brought
some home and they were dying. Within
minutes the night reference librarian, Anne
Barager, had found a source that offered that
information," said Foster.
There is also a complete reference section,
including medical and scientific journals
and pamphlets along with literary references
and several atlases.
The Audio Visual (AV) department, which

"Pick up the phone on the TV set, push
the button, and it rings in the AV depart­

tape. There is a catalog in each carousal
listing the numbers for each tape," said
