Read this post about the Darien Library's "extreme customer service." Their catchphrase? "Why would we NOT allow that?" Isn't that astonishing and refreshing? Too often library policy seems specially formulated to NOT allow as many things as possible, and every time another little incident occurs, another negative policy or rule is created.
At the end of the post, King asks:

I'd love to let out all the worms!!
