  41. 42.

  46. 47. Dance your fines away… <ul><li>“Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting a teen librarian who keeps Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) set up all the time so she can invoke it as need be.

  49. 50. City of Mesa Library, Arizona <ul><li>“ As I pointed out a probable flaw in the filtering system, as I discussed possible patron reactions with the mayor, I found a startling truth: Every single person in the room treated me as an equal.
