Something Bugs Me About This Headline

Part of my summer break was visiting libraries throughout the upstate New York region. It's been a very rewarding experience; which is why when I read headlines like this, "Librarians come out from behind the desks," makes me wonder if this is just an old time stereotype.

David Sturm from The Jeffersonian writes, "The Parkville library has since February moved some of its librarians out from behind the information desk and into the stacks or other parts of the library as "roving librarians" offering assistance to patrons."

In all honesty, I never saw any librarians I visited "hiding" behind an information desk. How could they with visitors requesting hands-on help constantly. Each staffer was up and about…doing. Maybe it's me or a mischaracterization?
