“Ms. Hayden, I’m a little late returning some of my books.”

“Mickey, call me Carla. And I’m not that kind of librarian. I’m the Librarian of Congress.”

“Oh, okay. Do you have to tell John McCain and Lindsey Graham to be quiet a lot? I can see those two getting rambunctious.”

“No, Mickey. Not Congress’ librarian. I’m in charge of the Library of Congress.”

“Do you read to the children?”

“I have. I like to do that quite a bit, but that’s not really my job.”

“Do you throw homeless people out of the bathrooms?”

“I’m not a regular librarian, Mickey.”

“What about the sticks in the newspapers? Are you the one who puts the sticks in the newspapers?”

“Yes, I am.”
