Just saw on FB that my old
boss John Berry has died. He was Mr. Library, a giant among librarians, a passionate advocate for public libraries and intellectual freedom. Did you know that he also was the father of one of the original Beastie Boys?

He projected such authority when it came to the library world, but he was also so down-to-earth, so able and willing to talk to anyone. A legend in our world. He will be missed.
