Winner named for new Lemony Snicket librarian prize

“There are Nobel winners — and now there are Noble winners. A new award — the Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced With Adversity – will be presented to Laurence Copel, the founder of the Lower Ninth Ward Street Library in New Orleans. Known to the children in her neighborhood as the Book Lady, Copel opened a library in her home while living on $350 a week. She also turned her bicycle into a mobile book carrier, making house visits for families who couldn’t leave home.” (via San Francisco)
