"But for most rock star librarians, it isn’t all or nothing. Mariah Cherem, production librarian at Ann Arbor District Library (AADL), MI, has been in many bands during her music career, including the Avatars and Van Houten, but isn’t interested in making it a full-time job…

Maybe that makes all librarians rock stars.”
