I'll slip on some 'Thunderbirds' and nobody will tell the difference

Seth's just "persuaded" a bunch of early teens (12, 13 years old) to leave the library after being extremely rowdy. Once they'd eventually left he went back over to the PCs in the teens area to put the furniture back where it should be.

Which is how he found the half-empty bottle of gin that they'd left behind.

Topiary visited a library recently which had a full-time, uniformed, armed guard around the library tables.

Round and round he walked, admonishing here, warning there, coralling all young library computer users into a semblance of decorum.

No gin bottles were seen under his regime.

If we had a full-time, uniformed, armed guard in our library it would be to keep certain members of staff safely in their offices.

Ancillary duties as assigned. Multitasking. Perhaps, hypermiling?

The possibilities are endless and call for a grant, study or trial of armed guards, surely.

Good idea. I must put together a business case for funding.

See? There are perks to working in a public library!
