D.C. chief librarian Ginnie Cooper discusses changes to system

“D.C. Public Library’s chief librarian, Ginnie Cooper, wouldn’t do what she does if she didn’t have an appreciation for books and the effect they have on others. Books have influenced her life so much that she and her husband, Rick Bauman, were married in a library in 1995. Instead of throwing rice, their guests threw pages from romance novels. Before becoming chief librarian in 2006, Cooper was library director for the Brooklyn Public Library System in New York. Since her move to the District, she has led her staff in transforming the city’s library system to encourage residents to utilize what their neighborhood libraries have to offer. Her work in libraries stretches back more than 40 years.” (via The Washington Post)
