Librarian wannabe

Librarian wannabe Keith Richards says: “When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equaliser." John Harlow writes in the Times that Richards has has even considered “professional training” to manage thousands of books at his homes in Sussex and Connecticut. "He started to arrange the volumes, including rare histories of early American rock music and the second world war, by the librarian’s standard Dewey Decimal classification system but gave up on that as “too much hassle.” Amen.
