Case Study No. 1845: "The Elusive Wild Librarian"

The Elusive Wild Librarian...
Wild Librarians are very shy and hard to find. I went on a search recently and managed to catch one, briefly, on camera, in Quinn Library.

**No books were harmed in the making of this video.**

[scene opens with someone holding a handheld camera and walking through Quinn Library at Ohio University-Chillicothe, when he points it at himself]
CHRIS: Today, we're hunting for the rare librarian. Let's go see if we can find her ...
[he points the camera forward, then opens a door and starts walking through the stacks area]
CHRIS: [from off camera] This is the natural habitat of the librarian. They live in stacks like these.
[he stops and gasps when he sees a female librarian (hair in a bun, purple and white blouse, black pants), standing with her back to him, at the end of one of the aisles]
CHRIS: [from off camera] We've spotted one! Quick, she might run and hide ...
[she turns, then runs behind one of the bookcases]
CHRIS: [from off camera] Oh! She ran!
[he starts walking down the aisle towards her]
CHRIS: [from off camera] We're gonna find her ... Where's that rare librarian?
[the librarian peeks from behind the bookcase]
CHRIS: [from off camera] Oh, she ... They're a shy bunch. You gotta approach quietly.
[she reaches out and tosses a book towards him]
CHRIS: [from off camera] Their natural defense, throwing books ...
[he backs away (as you can hear the librarian giggling), then starts to slowly walk forward again]
CHRIS: [from off camera] They can be dangerous, but if you corner one ... you can usually pet them!
[she takes a book off a nearby cart and throws it, so he backs off again]
CHRIS: [from off camera] No! She's a vicious one!
