AshtabulaGuy writes "Lifestyles Editor Carl E. Feather wrote in Monday's edition of The Star Beacon profiling Kingsville Public Library interim director Kathy Pape. What is unique about director Pape? Pape lacks even a bachelor's degree and has no background in library science. From direct personal observation Kingsville Public Library presently employs no holders of ALA-accredited master's degrees in library science. Feather additionally wrote which is of note to all MLS holders: 'Kathy has plunged into the library science side of the work since taking the job. Sheâ€™s gone back to college to earn her bachelorâ€™s and hopes to eventually earn a master of library science. Just as Kathyâ€™s vibrant, youthful personality defies the stereotype of the crabby librarian, sheâ€™s found library science to be an exciting field.' Is this perhaps a challenge to us?"
