The Curious ‘Cat: “What Person, Living or Dead, Would Be an Ideal Librarian?”
This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanova students,
“What Person, Living or Dead, Would Be an Ideal Librarian?”
Caroline McCarthy: “Maya Angelou … after she passed away this year, I … read a lot of her quotes, and they’re all awesome, and I read her book, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. So I think she was a great author and inspirational figure and had a lot of wisdom and helped the students.”
Tanner Grace: “I’m thinking back to the colonies in America, the American colonies, those really educated men who would read all day. I would say Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson. … I read a biography on him once, and he seemed very bookish.”
Nkemka Obineche: “I think Dr. Seuss would be a good librarian. … He’s a fun guy … makes reading fun. That’s how I learned to read.”
Erica McGaurn: Stephen Colbert—“It would just be very comical … he would be very interactive with the students.”
Isobel McCreavy: “Truman Capote because he would just tell you to read his books.”
Nicholas Crowley: Genghis Khan—“I just watched this Netflix show; it’s called Marco Polo. … I guess that’s why he popped into my head.”
The Curious ‘Cat feature by Gerald Dierkes, senior copyeditor, Communication and Publications team; Access Services specialist, Access Services Team; liaison to the Department of Theater.

With Genghis Khan there would be no overdue books!
Mr. Rogers. I mean, he wears a cardigan. He’s a shoe-in.
