    You’ve probably met our hardworking Library Pages on one of your visits to the Library. Perhaps you remember your first time here, and the guided tour that a Page provided. If you frequent the Hornblower, Whitridge, and Members rooms, you’ve seen them taking a head count to track the busiest and slowest times in the Library. In addition to those tasks, Pages also prepare each new book by carefully applying labels indicating the call number of each volume, a custom-fit Mylar cover to protect the dust jacket, and the pocket that holds each due date card.
